IFOAM America Latina works to develop the organic and agroecological movements and expand related markets on behalf of Latin American and Caribbean stakeholders.
This network represents IFOAM affiliates/members in the region, including traders, certifiers, associations, NGOs, and individuals. Its goal is to achieve a just, equitable global society of informed, happy citizens based on the principles of sustainable development and democracy.
IFOAM America Latina builds alliances with and advocates for political support from national governments (e.g. parliaments and ministries), intergovernmental agencies, and other organizations. These efforts focus on crafting public policies favorable to the production and commercialization of organic products.
In addition to supporting knowledge transfer and lateral exchange between organizations to promote cross-sector utilization of ecological systems, IFOAM America Latina also serves as a forum to discuss and analyze the current climate of the organic sector in the region and around the world.
