Background: Organic farming and climate change

Organic farming has a number of objectives, such as to avoid damage to the environment, to promote biodiversity, to manage attractive landscapes, to keep livestock in a manner that fulfils their welfare requirements, and to produce good food. It also provides a key to solving the problem of climate change: organic farming is an alternative that uses resources sparingly, is climate-friendly, and offers significant scope for climate change adaptation.

FiBL is working on a range of projects related to climate change and organic agriculture. At these pages some background information as well as information on FiBL projects and publications is presented.
