Regional Activities

IFOAM Regional Bodies lead, unite and assist the organic movement in its full diversity -- with a focus on a particular region.

They are regionally based initiatives that cross sector boundaries, linked to Global IFOAM through its affiliates in a “franchise" system. They mirror IFOAM’s structure and follow IFOAM’s principles in a manner reflecting the interests of their defined regions.

IFOAM actively encourages the establishment of these bodies under its mandate to create a true global network. In particular since the IFOAM General Assembly in Korea in October 2011, Regional Bodies receive a great deal of financial and adminstrative support, in line with a decision taken by IFOAM's membership.
