Summary

Organic Agriculture has an inherent potential to improve several aspects of rural livelihoods: lower production costs and therefore lower debts, higher incomes, more resilience to market fluctuations and climate change, more food security and better nutrition, sustainable management of soil fertility, water resources, biodiversity, fewer health hazards etc. Nevertheless, many efforts to make use of this potential on a large scale have failed.
