Egelyng, Henrik; Halberg, Niels and Høgh-Jensen, Henning (2006) Organic Agriculture in a Development Policy Perspective. Poster at: Joint Organic Congress, Odense, Denmark, May 30-31, 2006.
Farmers growing food with high eco-efficiency may be seen cultivating peace by reducing competition among nations for oil and as producers of other public goods: biodiverse landscapes and ecosystem services with more soil fertility, less water use and less pollution. How does Organic agriculture (OA) fare globally on eco-efficiency? Are most African farmers eco-efficient – or may eco-efficient farmers be found everywhere? As OA develops throughout the planet, what does Denmark do beyond Europe? Is organic farming part of our development policy? Do we dilligently share our comparative advantages in this field with developing nations? This article pursues these basic questions.
