IFOAM is the only organization compiling data about PGS. IFOAM's efforts to compile comprehensive data on PGS worldwide have started recently and are still under way. In this session we offer facts and figures about PGS around the world, through a map and an online database.
Browse through these sections to find specific information on PGS about your own country or about different areas of the world.
IFOAM has also developed a logo for PGS initiatives that obtain official recognition after an evaluation by IFOAM and the PGS Committee. The PGS that are recognized by IFOAM can be easily identified on the Global Online Database. Are you part of a PGS that would like to be listed in this database? The process is simple and it starts with a voluntary questionnaire for your PGS: the Self Evaluation Form (SEF). It is available in English, Français, Español and Português.
Besides being on the database, is your PGS also interested in obtaining official IFOAM recognition and use the PGS Logo? Please contact the IFOAM PGS coordinator at pgs [at] ifoam [dot] org
This database is provided by IFOAM to help PGS stakeholders and everybody interested in PGS to connect, share and collect information.
The map provides an overview of PGS worldwide (showing numbers of farmers involved in PGS in the different countries).
