Forum of the Outdoor Laboratories for Agrobiodiversity
in Montpellier April 30, 2015 – from 14:00 to 17:30
Institut des Régions chaudes
Montpellier SupAgro – 1101, Avenue Agropolis
The Outdoor Laboratories method was started in 2013 to establish collaborative research programs, based on priorities defined by peasant farmers engaged in an ecological transition of their ways of farming. The activities are focused on questions formed by the farmers and researchers together in the different areas (Languedoc-Roussillon in France, Kabylia and Mzab in Algeria, and Djougou in Benin) aimed at enhancing agricultural biodiversity. A forum is organized on April 30 to reflect the results of the collective method and to open the reflection to the entire scientific community.
