The objective of the seminar is to discuss relevant main challenges and how research and developmental work can be more efficiently directed to solve problems in organic farming systems. The seminar will be arranged around the following four tracks:
1. Societal and economic viability
2. Transition to renewable resources
3. Nutrient sufficiency and management in farming systems
4. Productivity and sustainable production levels in animal and crop production

In 2012, German organic farmers increased their sales revenues by 12 percent (to 1.53 billion euros). High prices for cereals, fruit, and vegetables and higher prices for livestock, especially for laying hens and other poultry, are the main reason for this positive development.
The annual survey among the control bodies conducted by the Agricultural Market Information Company (AMI) (financed by the Federal Office for Agriculture and Food (BLE) within the Federal Scheme for Organic Farming and Other Forms of Sustainable Agriculture (BÖLN)) gave these new results: Organic animal husbandry in Germany 2012: Sheep and goat meat: 3250 tons, 8.1 percent of all sheep and goat meat; Eggs: 891 million eggs, 7.3 percent of all eggs; Beef: 39200 tons, 7.3 percent of all beef; Milk: 67'939 tons, 2.3 percent of all milk; poultry meat 13'390 tons, 0.8 percent of all poultry meat; pork 24'200 tons, 0.4 percent of all pork.
Compared with 2011, each German organic farm increased its sales revenue per hectare by 135 euros with up to 1’483 euros.

The workshop is organized by multiple bodies: Agronomic and Veterinary Institute Hassan II (Agadir, Morocco), FiBL (Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (Frick, Switzerland), the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Bari (Italy), the Moroccan Association of Organic Farming (Casablanca, Morocco), the Association Agrotechnology Souss Massa Draa (Agadir, Morocco) and the Trade Network - Sustainable Development (Lausanne, Switzerland), in collaboration with the World Health Organization Food and Nutrition (WHO ), the National Institute of Agronomic Research (Morocco), the Regional Council of Souss Massa Draa, the National Agency for the Development Zones oasis and Argan, the Regional Office of Agricultural Development of Souss Massa The Mediterranean Network of Organic Agriculture (Italy) and the Agricultural Cooperative COPAG (Taroudant, Morocco).
The objectives are different: to make the point of the status of research and development activities, to review the progress made in the certification of local products through labels and trademarks referred to lacol productions, to identify future challenges, discuss multiple labeling. The intention is also to work at the creation of a platform for dialogue and exchange between researchers, scientists and decision makers, expanding exchanges with ethno-biological themes, and including the relationship among diet, organic farming, productions of origin (like European PDO, PGI) and the Mediterranean identity.
The plenary sessions will work on nutrition, diet and cancer prevention with Professor Henri Joyeux (Faculty of Medicine, Montpellier; international cooperation in the field of organic agriculture with Dr. Cosimo Lacirignola (IAM Bari, Italy); organic research with Prof. Dr. Urs Niggli (FiBL, Switzerland); and experience of the Mediterranean organic farming and local products with Dr. Florence Tartanac (FAO, Rome).

L'ISMEA ha diffuso gli ultimi dati sull'andamento del consumo interno di prodotti biologici in Italia. Un trend sempre positivo, anche in tempo di crisi, con un incremento della spesa del 6,1% nel primo semestre del 2012 rispetto alla prima metà del 2011.
According to the latest results of the monitoring report published by EFSA, the European Food Safety Authority, 97.2% of the 84,341 samples analysed in 2015 were free of quantifiable residues or contained residues within the legally permitted levels (the limits allowed by EU legislation): 53.3% has no quantifiable residues, while 43.9% contains residues that do not exceed the legal limits. The figures are in line with the findings in 2014. In this context, Italy remains among the best performing countries in the EU, with 98.5% of agri-food products with residues below legal limits, positioning itself above the average of the European countries (98.3%). The report contains the findings on pesticide residues in imported food, organic products, baby food as well as results for animal products; it also analyzes organic food (from page 67) and, out of 5,331 samples tested, 4,574 did not contain quantifiable residues (85.8%). Based on the analysis of the 2015 pesticide monitoring results, EFSA derived a number of recommendations to increase the efficiency of the European control systems to ensure a high level of consumer protection.
