Lead a global organisation that is transforming agriculture and food systems!
IFOAM - Organics International is looking for a new Executive Director to start on 1 November 2023 or as mutually agreed. We aim to fill the position as soon as possible and therefore encourage early application for this role
Organic farming systems have the potential to be a real game changer in a world threatened by ecosystem and climate collapse. Practised by millions of farmers and supported by hundreds of millions of consumers around the globe, it substantially contributes to the production of healthy, nutritious food and other natural products for a growing population. Furthermore, it enables farmers to earn a fair living, regenerates and enhances soil fertility and biodiversity, safeguards and replenishes scarce water resources, mitigates climate change and helps people who are negatively impacted adapt to that change.
Recognised globally as part of the solution to the crises of food security, inequality, climate and biodiversity loss, the task now is to upscale and further develop organic farming and food systems. This requires a new phase in IFOAM – Organics International, uniting members, staff and allies in building new partnerships, setting a global agenda and empowering our members to drive change around the world. We seek new leadership for this new chapter!
