Organic Agriculture and Food Security

2015, 2 Pages
This leaflet outlines how organic agriculture supports and enhances ecologically sound systems of food production that can achieve food security, for example by a) Increasing and stabilizing yields, particularly on marginal lands; b) Improving resistance to pests and diseases; c) Combating desertification through decreasing erosion and improving water uptake and retention; d) Battling poverty through reducing debt and increasing returns on labor invested; and e) Maintaining genetic crop diversity, which helps cope with climate change.
