Final Report - DIVTOB (Diversification for Tobacco Growing Regions in the Southern European Union)

Project ID: 22739
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

A sustainable policy approach has been formed within the European Union in order to rationalise the tobacco cultivation, which includes a step-wise decoupling of the tobacco premium. The EU-funded DIVTOP project aimed to support this new policy development through the search for diversification options that would have the potential to provide innovative employment and income sources to tobacco growers.

This final activity report justifies the change in European priorities and summarises the project objectives. It then presents the current situation in the sector, analyses and compares the various alternatives with respect to the needs and characteristics of the tobacco producers. Moreover, the document pinpoints the main conclusions derived by DIVTOP and closes with several proposals for further progress and successful policy application.
