DIVERSIFY DIVERSIFICATION - Friday April 22nd - 14.00 - 16.00
What can and should be done to diversify agri-food in rural Ireland?
This online session, hosted by Sustainable Ireland Coop / Cultivate with support from the IEN, will examine in detail the topic of diversification in farming food and rural Ireland. There are two main key objectives. The first is to unpack in detail what is possible and desirable regarding on and off farm diversification; what wider impacts (positive and negative) these diversifications may have for farm incomes, for biodiversity, for climate adaptation and mitigation and for rural revitalisation.
