Proceedings of the regional symposium on organic agriculture: Youth engagement and enterprise development

  • ICIMOD
  • Summary

The adoption of organic farming practices could help countries across the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In December 2019, our Resilient Mountain Solutions initiative collaborated with the Agriculture Research and Development Centre, Bhutan to organize a regional symposium on “Organic agriculture: Youth engagement and enterprise development”. It culminated in a 10-point resolution supportive of enabling policy environments for the aggregation, branding, investment, and market development of organic products from the region. The event highlighted the need for public-private partnerships and incentives to encourage socially responsible production and profit-sharing mechanisms for local communities across the HKH.
