This study aims to provide an assessment of the diversity and agronomic quality of crop rotation/sequence, generalised grassland regions and regions with a high rate of organic farming. The assessment methods are applied to Famenne, Ardenne and the Jurassic region of Wallonia.

The protein transition, defined as the rebalancing between animal and alternative proteins in diets, is presented as a solution to mitigate the harmful effects of cattle production on the environment. We discuss the implications of such a transition on current livestock farms.
A Ph.D. on the institutional enablers of pathways of product diversification in the Walloon dairy sector. A focus on the models of cooperative governance and on the interplay between cooperative agency and the agency of farmers in these trajectories of product diversification.
Coexistence of Cooperative models as Structural answer to Lock-Ins in Diversification Pathways : The Case of the Walloon Dairy Sector
Drawing on the presence of various dairy cooperative models active in long value chains in the Walloon Region, the paper considers how their complementarity supports trajectories of diversification of dairy productions and invites to consider cooperative models in terms of coexistence
Coexistence of cooperative models as structural answer to lock-ins in diversification pathways: the case of the Walloon dairy sector
This poster considers the coexistence of recently emerged new cooperative models alongside the historically developed mainstream dairy cooperatives as a way to circumvent locks-ins in diversification pathways of milk processing.
Lock-Ins and Agency: Towards an Embedded Approach of Individual Pathways in the Walloon Dairy Sector
A qualitative study on how the agency articulates with structural dynamics in the individual trajectories of dairy farmers. A model of interconnected and embedded lock-ins, from the organizational frame of the regime to the individual frame.
Transition potential of cheese-processing niche value chains in the Région Herbagère Liégeoise and Haute Ardenne
Study on the trajectories and issues faced by the dairy farmers in niche cheese-processing value chains, that uncovers systemic lock-ins to alternative pathways of milk production and processing in the Walloon Region
