Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) Publishes New Training Materials to Advance Organic Agriculture in Africa

The Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL) has published new training materials aimed at advancing organic agriculture in Africa. The training series utilizes diverse formats to communicate the results from three projects implemented by FiBL in the tropics – SysCom, ProEcoAfrica, and OFSA projects.

Organic farming has been proven to have numerous benefits over conventional farming under temperate environments, mainly in Europe or Northern America. However, there has been a knowledge gap regarding whether organic agriculture can contribute to sustainable development in tropical conditions. The FiBL projects aim to fill this gap by working closely with farmers in Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, India, and Bolivia to design and undertake research.

The projects have significantly enhanced the scientific evidence about the performance of organic agriculture in comparison to conventional agriculture in the tropics. Based on these insights, an accessible knowledge series was developed in collaboration with the GIZ project, Knowledge Centre for Organic Agriculture (KCOA).

The KCOA project seeks to close knowledge gaps to promote food systems that create food security and respect the Earth’s environmental limits. The FiBL’s training materials will contribute to advancing organic agriculture in Africa by providing relevant information and insights into the benefits and opportunities of organic agriculture.
