The organic development programme has increased the visibility of organic products and intensified cooperation between actors

MDI, together with TK-Eval, carried out an evaluation of the organic development programme for the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. Thanks to the development program for organic farming, the visibility of organic products has increased, cooperation between operators has intensified, and operators have been encouraged to grasp organic production. The future of organic farming looks bright and the development programme can continue to support the development of the organic sector, but financial investment and stakeholder involvement in development are needed.

The evaluation was carried out between June and September 2018 and was based on documentary and statistical data, interviews, a questionnaire for organic operators and regional workshops.
