25 March 2021 New EU Organic Action Plan, with Bio-Districts as protagonists

The 25th of March, the European Commission presented the Action Plan for the development of organic production. Extensive actions and investments are planned to encourage the consumption of health food for the purposes of Community policies.

An important role is given also to Bio-Districts (or Organic Districts), which are explicitly mentioned in the EU Document, with an invitation to Member States to support any development and implementation, to reach 25% of total EU agricultural land under organic farming by 2030. This is the goal set by the strategies “Farm to Fork” and “Biodiversity”, promoted by the EU as part of the “Green Deal”.

This is an undoubted recognition at international level, that rewards the work of all organic districts created in Italy, in Europe and in the World and the activities of international coordination and development carried out by IN.N.E.R association network and the worldwide alliance for organic districts GAOD (www.gaod.online), with the active participation of IFOAM Organics Europe.
