INCREASED LEARNING TRANSFER FOR GLOBALG.A.P. IFA

GLOBALG.A.P. IFA is the most successful agricultural certification worldwide – a complex standard for sustainability and food safety compliance, which must be individually interpreted and implemented based on local context.

In order to support producers with adopting Good Agricultural Practices and preparing for the audit, Farm Assurers must go through a multimodal training, which must comprehensibly instill the normative content of the standards and their interpretation as well as prove to be successful in practice.

NORMATIVE TRANSLATION OF SUSTAINABLE PRACTICES

Individually developed sustainability standards allow farmers to implement more specific sustainability aspects and can be checked for compliance by accredited certifiers.

COOP’s Sustainable Water Management Program with a focus on water use is a good example of building on an existing standard (i.e. GLOBALG.A.P. IFA). It enables farmers to make an increased contribution to sustainable agriculture and differentiate their products along the value chain.

EXPERIENCING THE CONTRIBUTION TO SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE

Achieving Sustainable Development Goal #2 requires a balance of economic and environmental action and is supported by Good Agricultural Practices and various stewardship measures.

To make this comprehensible for the general public, demonstration farms present innovative sustainable agriculture concepts and their mechanisms of action.
