Summary

The environmental and social challenges of the planet are a sad reality. Organic Agriculture advocates often espouse its contributions to mitigating the negative effects of farming. But mitigation alone is not enough. Farmers also need to adapt to a changed climate, reduced biodiversity and depleted resources as well as to an ever-changing socio-cultural environment. The Session Social and Environmental Challenges at OWC 2014 in Istanbul will look into the mitigation contributions and the potentials to measure, communicate and improve the impact of organic farming. It will also explore the coping strategies of organic farmers around the globe, in order to improve their livelihoods not only economically but also environmentally, socially and culturally.
