IFOAM Regional Bodies lead, unite and assist the organic movement in its full diversity – with a focus on a particular region.
Regional Bodies are regionally based initiatives that cross sector boundaries, linked to IFOAM – Organics International through its Affiliates around the world. Mirroring the principles and structure of IFOAM – Organics International, Regional Bodies represent the interests of their defined regions.
IFOAM – Organics International actively encourages the establishment of Regional 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 the membership.
