Global Alliance for Organic Districts (GAOD): Scaling Up Organic Agriculture

Oliver Gardener writes for Regeneration International:

“The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of resilient local food systems that promote healthy people, environmental stewardship and a strong local economy. Lobbying governments around the world to adopt and support organic regenerative farming practices is paramount to establishing and maintaining local food systems and access to healthy food. 

During these trying times, Regeneration International (RI) has remained steadfast in its efforts to spread the word about organic regenerative agriculture to local governments, municipalities, cities and regions worldwide.

Our latest endeavor includes participating in the virtual launch of the first Global Alliance for Organic Districts (GAOD), an alliance announced on World Food Day 2020 between Asian Local Governments for Organic Agriculture (ALGOA) and the International Network of Eco Regions (I.N.N.E.R.)."

One of the key projects in this global endeavor is the Billion Agave Agroforestry Project in Mexico, applicable to much of the 40% of the world that are desertified, arid, or semi-arid.
