Title: Organic Agriculture and Fair Trade in West Africa
Abstract Organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems, biodiversity and people. It relies on ecological processes and nutrient cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of external inputs with adverse effects. Organic agriculture combines traditional knowledge, innovation and modern science to benefit the shared environment and promote fair relationships and a good quality of life for all involved (IFOAM, 2004).
