National Ecological Organic Agriculture Strategy (2023 - 2030)

The agenda on food safety for human health and other fauna and desire to overcome unreasonable use of agricultural inputs while conserving ecosystem services has been among the top priorities among nations for the past four decades. These are often proclaimed through various initiatives including the use of agroecological practices, organic agriculture, sustainable agriculture, sustainable resource utilization, healthy living and many others.

In Tanzania, much of agricultural production is subsistence and could easily fit into all desired qualities of healthy food despite a small segment of growers particularly in the horticulture sector which has been abusing the inputs, compromising the suitability of the agricultural produce. Inefficiencies of working tools and established authorities to regulate the safe production and control of the product qualities specifically on Ecological Organic Agriculture, have been among critical setback to assess the production of healthy food in safe environment. The first National Ecological Organic Agriculture Conference (NEOAC) held in 2019 acknowledged the need to improve small holder livelihood, protection of their health, conservation of the environment (particularly soils) and the biodiversity, conquering new export markets and increasing foreign currency saving and deliberated to the development of the “National Ecological Organic Agriculture Strategy” (NEOAS), the outcome of which is the present strategy.

The present strategy covers various aspects of ecological organic agriculture in Tanzania and the implementation modalities as well as the monitoring and evaluation (M&E).
