CONNECT WITH ORGANIC FARMER ORGANISATIONS
INOFO ensures that organic farmer organisations and organic farmers have their voices heard on all platforms – local, national, regional and global. Farmers in every corner of the globe possess invaluable traditional knowledge and a deep understanding of the real conditions on the ground, especially those that affect food production and security. INOFO strives to connect these farmer organisations to ensure that developmental policies and private interests do not threaten the needs and sovereignty of local farmers, or the natural environment that sustains regenerative agriculture.
THE INTER-CONTINENTAL NETWORK OF ORGANIC FARMER ORGANISATIONS
Utilizing the power of bottom-up farmer led approach, INOFO is a global network that facilitates a new relationship between existing Organic* farmers associations. INOFO is not a new organisation, and certainly not one for individual farmers to join. We lobby for change to pursue common objectives that relate to food sovereignty in general and, in particular, to public policy & farmers land rights, climate adaptation, production standards & guarantee systems, marketing & pricing negotiations, participatory research, technical training & exchanges, education & other farmers concerns. Additionally, we focus on developing youth engagement in all professional forums, ensuring that social and environmental dimensions in our communities are not compromised. Finally, INOFO hopes to illuminate the issues surrounding small-scale, organic farming by publicly discussing and bringing forward the realities of the farmers across the world.
* The English term designating this production method, Organic agriculture, is synonymous in other languages with different terms, such as ecologico and biologique, as defined by private standards and/or legislation in most countries. It is not a theory, an ideology or a trading system, it is a method of production based on the agronomy of the living soil and on the historic refusal by pioneer farmers of synthetic chemicals (fertilisers, pesticides and other unwanted inventions).
Keep ethical, sustainable and efficient organic farming alive through accessing our open-source and accessible farmer knowledge base. Our knowledge-base includes traditional sources and instructions from OFO members.
Contact, share, and disclose legal and environmental issues with a global network of farmers and activists. We believe in fighting for farmers' rights and security and seek to expose injustices and empower farmers through collective power that starts on our farms.
Join our many online and on-the-ground forums to connect with other organic farmer organisations and share your experiences. We host frequent online and in-person events across the globe, and ensure that all platforms are included in our global communications strategy.
JOIN US AND PARTICIPATE WITH FARMERS ON THE GROUND
We invite all farmers and farming organisations to join our online forums, trainings, webinars, and conferences. These events are fantastic avenues to meet like-minded agriculturalists, academics and civil activists, allowing farmers on the ground to network effectively for their needs and demands from civil and political society.
