Policy & sector development

Food and agricultural systems are highly complex. Their development requires a systematic approach and well-designed activities that target producers and society at large. In the case of organic agriculture and similar certification schemes, FiBL provides a broad range of complementary services to ensure sound policy and sector development. The most common ones are listed below:

  • Sector and sustainability assessments;
  • Capacity building among policy makers and certification bodies;
  • Policy advice and the development of National Action Plans for organic agriculture;
  • The elaboration and revision of national organic standards and legislation;
  • The development of labelling schemes and private standards in collaboration with the sector;
  • Supporting and implementing organic sector studies, publications and conferences.
