Climate Change Conference: The organic movement is present

The International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements IFOAM and FiBL are present at the Climate Change Conference with several activities.

IFOAM EU Group, IFOAM 2009: High sequestration ....
(December 10, 2009) 

Together with FiBL, IFOAM has prepared the study „High Sequestration, Low Emission, Food Secure Farming“ which shows the  major potential organic farming offers as a climate change mitigation and adaptation strategy. (See also FiBL media release of December 9, 2009). IFOAM has also prepared two fact sheets; one on Organic Agriculture’s Role in Countering Climate Change; one on Climate Change Adaptation in Africa.

IFOAM is reporting daily from the conference with short video updates.

Furthermore a number of events are scheduled to take place during the conference.

Throughout the conference, IFOAM is running a stand in the exhibition area, to provide a meeting point and a place for sharing information.
