Summary

Conclusion
- Currently few public data collection and processing systems on an international level exist with regard to the organic agriculture and food sector (however FAO, EUROSTAT, IFOAM have startes activities).
- Less activities aree run to harmonise national organic data collection systems on an international level.
- Investment decisions of market actors and support decisions of policy makers are taken under conditions of great uncertainty.
- Organic data know-how in most countries concentrated on less and private minds.
- Public demand for organic data presently often are just statements and action plan points to support organic farming in theory.
- Partly the link is missing between political objectives (on national and international level) and realisation by statistic authorities.
- The EU-project European Inforamtion Systems for Organic Markets will assist all national and international efforts to improve organic data collecting in next two years.
