|Food, Fairness and Ecology: An organic research agenda for a sustainable future.|
Organic farming is a productive low-input agricultural system,
emphasising sustainability and offering innovative concepts for global
problems. The IFOAM-EU Group and ISOFAR have developed a strategic
research program that focuses on ecological intensification,
sustainable rural regions, high quality food for healthy nutrition and
on integrating people and their ethical values into the future
evolvement of food production. The workshop invites farmers,
processors, traders, NGOs and scientists to debate how the practical
and scientific aspects should co-operate on future innovations.
