The over­all goal of Diver­IM­PACTS — Diver­si­fi­ca­tion through Rota­tion, Inter­crop­ping, Mul­ti­ple Crop­ping, Pro­mot­ed with Actors and val­ue-Chains towards Sus­tain­abil­i­ty — is to achieve the full poten­tial of diver­si­fi­ca­tion of crop­ping sys­tems for improved pro­duc­tiv­i­ty, deliv­ery of ecosys­tem ser­vices and resource-effi­cient and sus­tain­able val­ue chains. Diver­IM­PACTS has 34 part­ners and the project is fund­ed under Hori­zon 2020, the Euro­pean Union’s frame­work pro­gramme for research and innovation.

DiverIMPACTS will build on existing experiences of crop diversification by networking and expanding 10 existing field experiments to quantify impacts of crop diversification and by accompanying 25 multi-actor case studies in their dynamic transition.

DiverIMPACTS will propose a range of technical and organisational innovations to remove lock-ins from farmers to consumers as well as strategies and recommendations to sustain crop diversification.
