Case studies

DYNAVERSITY partners selected and analysed 21 experiences representing the different players and networks involved in in situ and on farm conservation, and their interrelations. Selected case studies cover the different geographical regions of Europe, different crop types and species and different actor categories (gardeners, farmers, seed companies…). Two case studies have been performed in the USA.

Through these case studies, the consortium aims at understanding what it is that enables different initiatives to link up and collaborate. The theoretical framework of reference for this analysis is the transformative social innovation (TSI) theory which was operationalised in a set of questions, that supported the development of an interview guide. A total of 64 stakeholders were interviewed.

The whole set of case studies analyses is available for download as zip file (9 MB). Here, you can read and download a synthesis or an in depth analysis of each case.
