2019 OFIA Summit

The world is in urgent need of sustainable solutions to food insecurity, soil erosion, biodiversity decline, and climate change. Innovations in organic agriculture play an integral role in the search for local or scalable solutions for more sustainable and regenerative farming. The Organic Farming Innovation Award (OFIA), an initiative of the Republic of Korea, highlights such organic innovations and is awarded to scientists, practitioners, and extension agents working to increase effectiveness, efficiency and productivity of organic farming. In 2019, the 6th OFIA Summit will focus on "Nurturing a Culture of Improvement in Organic Agriculture".

Two interactive panel discussions will address the 'Role of Innovation' and 'Nurturing a Culture of Improvement', looking at how innovations can address increasing health and environmental concerns while factoring in the needs of farmers and consumers. Each panel discussion will be preceded by an introductory presentation from a keynote speaker. Audience members will be invited to engage with speakers and share their first-hand experiences of innovative organic practices and methodologies with other participants.
