FiBL project

Title Organic Agriculture Support Initiative (OASI) Armenia
Title Original Organic Agriculture Support Initiative (OASI) Armenia
Official Acronym OASI
FiBL project number 65168
Abstract

The Organic Agriculture Support Initiative (OASI), a project funded by the European Union and co-funded and implemented by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA), the operational unit of the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC), aims to further develop organic agriculture in Armenia. The initial success of the organic products on the domestic and international markets will be enhanced by improving the policy and regulatory framework and providing comprehensive marketing support.

 

The OASI project establishes linkages with Armenian buyers and interested European and other international companies. In addition, Armenian organic producers get a chance to participate in international organic trade fairs. Support functions, i.e. extension and certification services will be further developed through demand-driven training and strengthening of existing local organizations. Financial support, training and input supply for farmers' groups, cooperatives, and processing units as well as other actors along the value chain is being provided, leading to a significant increase of organic actors and volumes.
