by Redaktion (comments: 0)
As organic farmers in Asia and the Pacific face the challenges of dynamically growing markets that are increasingly complex, their capacity to adapt to change, take entrepreneurial initiative and conceive of new solutions becomes crucial. Hosted by IFOAM and FAO from 2 - 4 December in Bangkok, Thailand, the Asia-Pacific Regional Symposium will address the different successful strategies adopted by organic farmer entrepreneurs to ensure their competitiveness in a series of presentations and workshops complemented by a field trip. There are also sponsorship opportunities available.
IFOAM invites abstracts to be submitted by August 23, 2013 on: Farming Strategies (crop and livestock production systems, yield and productivity, multiple benefits of organic farming, nutrition); Direct Marketing Solutions & Finance (agricultural finance & investment, short-chain markets and customer relationship), and Extension & Education (agricultural knowledge management, consumer’s education and training). Full contact details need to be provided, as well as the sessions interested in. The abstract should be no longer than 500 words and outline what will be presented in a 15 minute presentation slot. The abstract is to be sent here by 23 August 2013. Notification of acceptance and paper submission guidelines will be sent by 13 September 2013. Final papers are to be submitted by 31 October 2013.
