Summary

This paper analyzes and discusses aspects of the current globalisation of certified organic agriculture (COA), Northern institutional frameworks for certified organic agriculture and differences between Northern and Southern organic agriculture. It presents a preliminary approach to explore how far COA is institutionally embedded at national levels in developing countries, in terms of involving civil society, market actors and national government agencies, and it applies the same approach to an explorative study of China. Finally, the paper discusses the relevance of certified organic agriculture for development policy agendas.
