Policy focused Training/Advisory Services:

IFOAM - Organics International offers tailored training, coaching and consultancies on the development and improvement of policies that support the development of the organic sector.

We based our curriculum and technical advice on several decades of experience in observing, influencing and assisting the development of policies at the national or regional level, including organic regulations and policies that support the organic sector.

Our team of consultants has provided technical support to dozens of countries in the development of their organic regulations and policies. Our approach is to promote public-private partnerships, whereby the government and private sectors jointly develop national strategies and organic action plans. We provide technical expertise and advocate for sound public consultation processes that enable the development of locally-appropriate policy solutions. We can accompany governments in the whole process of national organic strategy development, policy review and organic policy formulation.
