Summary

The Technology Innovation Platform of IFOAM (TIPI) has developed a vision and strategy for organic farming research to advance organic agriculture through research, development, innovation and technology transfer. TIPI's vision and strategy was finalized in February 2016.
TIPI’s vision recognizes that current technologies based on heavy use of external inputs that are toxic, pollute the environment and are very energy-intensive come at a price. Investments in ecosystem services and the development of technologies that are productive, stable, adaptable, resilient, and fairly shared are much more likely to sustain the world’s population in a rapidly changing environment. Sustainable pathways to innovation will require engagement of all stakeholders in a science-driven multi-disciplinary approach.
