Diversification of its structures is a key part of IFOAM's strategy.
IFOAM takes a proactive approach to organizing at the regional level as well as along sector specific lines. Beyond Global IFOAM, the IFOAM Action Group is home to IFOAM Regional Bodies, IFOAM Sector Platforms and IFOAM Daughter Organizations.
Regional Bodies and Sector Platforms, two different kinds of Self-Organized Structures (SoS), enrich IFOAM's web of activities according to regional and sectoral priorities. IFOAM Daughter Organizations are devoted to explicit tasks such as accreditation and funding support.
To date there are six Regional, two National Bodies, five Sector Platforms and two Daughter Organizations, and the IFOAM Action Group is growing.
