How we Operate

The IFOAM Action Group

At the heart of IFOAM - Organics International are its 800 Affiliates in more than 100 countries. In order to unify, lead and assist this a broad-based constituency in a fair, inclusive and participatory manner, IFOAM - Organics International organizes a General Assembly every three years.

At every General Assembly, a World Board is elected to chart IFOAM's course and to appoint Affiliates to official committees, working groups and task forces on topics like the development of standards or the facilitation of Organic Agriculture in developing countries.

IFOAM member organizations also establish alliances based on regional and sector specific priorities, called Regional Bodies and Sector Platforms, respectively.
