News from EATingCRAFT project and beyond

December 2018

We have published new edition of the  IFOAM Policy Brief on “How Governments Can Support Participatory Guarantee Systems (PGS)”. Published for the first time in 2011, this Policy Brief on PGS is a landmark in IFOAM’s advocacy work. The document targets policy makers and advocates that wish to support PGS not only through recognition in their national organic regulatory systems, but also through different form of support aiming at promoting rather than regulating. The revision of the policy brief has been co-funded by the  European Union under Erasmus +, in the framework of the EATingCRAFT project.
