Knowledge for Development

A global vision and strategy for organic farming research


Date: 31/12/2014


The International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) argues that sustainable pathways to innovation will require the engagement of all stakeholders in a science driven multi-disciplinary approach. The organisation has developed the Technology Innovation Platform of IFOAM (TIPI) with a vision and a 14 point action plan to advance organic agriculture through research, development, innovation and technology transfer. The new paradigm proposed by TIPI is founded upon a whole systems approach, that engages farmers, researchers and other practitioners in co-innovative efforts; and open access technologies that are readily adaptable to local conditions. TIPI envisages bottlenecks in realising its vision and calls upon the organic farming community to support the action plan to advance organic agriculture in a forward-thinking and innovative way.
