Summary

It is generally acknowledged that organic agriculture can contribute to socio-economic and ecologically sustainable development. The market for organic products is growing and offers producers and exporters in the South opportunities to improve their incomes and living conditions. But what role does organic farming play in the poorer countries? Some current data are presented in this paper, based on the results of the annual global survey on organic farming carried out by the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture FiBL in collaboration with the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements IFOAM.
