Round Table on Organic Agriculture and Climate Change RTOACC

Climate change directly influences food production and food security. To address these new challenges, the Round Table on Organic Agriculture and Climate Change has been established on December 16, 2009, at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen.

The Round Table on Organic Agriculture and Climate Change (RTOACC) is a multi-stakeholder initiative with eight founding members. It brings together stakeholders and partners along the organic food production chain. 

The principal objectives of the round table are

  • Initiate, support and facilitate research on organic agriculture and climate change,
  • Advise the international community on organic agriculture and climate change issues,
  • Develop a measurement method to enable reliable quantification and certification of carbon sequestration in organic agriculture.
