Organic farming is an important contributor to economic growth in E Africa

This week in Tanzania, UNCTAD co-organized an event aimed at helping East African countries leverage the benefits of sustainable tourism and agriculture.

The event called the East-African Organic Policy Forum (EAOPF) is organised as part of the United Nations Inter-Agency Cluster on Trade and Productive Capacity.

The objective of the forum is to gather local and regional stakeholders to discuss strategies for developing organic agriculture in East Africa.
