Lessons learnt
Starting a project in Organic agriculture mobilizes:
- New dynamics on all levels
- Networks of organic stakeholders
- Awareness creation for other agricultural methods
Limited predictability of processes
- Difficult to plan
- Strongly influenced by a few individuals and the frame conditions (legal, economic, etc.)
Organisational development is very important:
- Often underestimated (in time, difficulty, importance)
- Lacking experience in civil societies and democratic structures
- Burden of Comunistic history
- Dominated by a few individuals (positive or negative)
- Professional support available (welcomed)
- Significant impact on general mind set of people
- Giving chances to motivated and open people
Multistakeholder approach is worth the effort:
- Wider acceptance
- Efficient use of local knowledge and experience
- Supports and network development
