New EU report on organic farming and the sustainability challenge

The IFOAM EU group has just published "Organic Farming: The system approach to meet the sustainability challenge". This dossier collects articles from different researchers, analysing available scientific results and approaching organic farming from different angles. It covers climate change, biodiversity, soil and water quality, the efficiency of nutrient and energy use in organic farming, and argues that policy support for organic farming is an effective and cost-efficient measure to meet several
sustainability goals.
