Title in English: Organic Chain Development in Ethiopia: Participatory Networking Workshop, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, 24-25 May 2007
Abstract / summary in English:
A workshop to stimulate awareness and the need for an organic agriculture movement in Ethiopia was held in the Semien Hotel, Addis Ababa, 24-25 May 2007.
Ethiopia has a large potential for sustainable production of organically grown crops that can be produced to high quality standards for the local and regional retail markets. Certified organic production can be developed for the European, American, Middle East, Japanese and other export markets. Organic/Fair Trade coffee has already been brought into the European and American markets.
Participants were invited from stakeholders already operating in organic export market chains and those interested in supporting the development of, or converting to organic production: government, certifying bodies, research institutions, cooperatives, donors and others currently working in sustainable agricultural production in Ethiopia.
