Background:

FAO selected a case study on the NOA PGS (Participatory Guarantee System (PGS)  as one of 15 international studies to be included in the FAO “Study on innovations in linking sustainable agricultural practices with local markets in developing countries”.

NOA PGS is an organic guarantee system to certify Namibian producers for the local Namibian market. It embodies the active participation of producers, consumers and traders.

As the study illustrated a unique approach to agro-ecological practices, this year it was also selected to be part of the second study that examines market linkages of the PGS, and it will provide evidence on the diversity of markets used in the sales of agro-ecological products.

Please confirm your attendance by 7 May 2015 to intern@noa.org.na, and at which date you would like to join us.

We look forward hearing what you have to say.
