The conference had one main event and several thematic workshops and seminars on topics such as Participatory Guarantee Systems, Organic Policy, Aquaculture and Local Certification. The participants also had the opportunity to visit the Saba-Saba fair, where organic products were displayed.
The conference is well documented and the presentations give a good overview of the current situation in East Africa. All the presentations of the conference, some of which inform about organic farming policy development in the East African countries, are available at the website of IFOAM
