G7 Agriculture in Bergamo: “Organic farming, a model of sustainability" (IT)

12/10/2017
Agenda

On the occasion of the G7 agriculture, building on the experiences of the G7 Countries and of the main international organizations, a conference titled "Organic farming as a model for sustainable agricultural systems" will highlight the global situation of the sector and will present the "Bergamo Organic Charter", whose intention is  to continue along the path of the charter "Organic will feed the planet" approved in 2015 at Expo Milano. The new "Organic Charter of Bergamo", to be discussed in the presence of an institutional panel (Mipaaf, Ciheam-Maib, Ifoam EU, Federbio), intends to focus on organic agriculture as an essential tool for transforming world agricultural systems. And this despite the unpredictability of factors such as climate change, crop loss and food price volatility, that no production model can yet control. Organic agriculture represents the only innovation in the domain of agriculture and food of the last century, based on the rediscovery of an ecosystemic, socially inclusive and sustainable approach from an economic and environmental point of view. Its global success is demonstrated by over 2 million operators in 164 Countries participating in food production by using local resources, reducing the dependence on external production factors and increasing their own resilience despite climate changes.
