Beschrijving

The OASI project will contribute to the objectives of the Armenian Sustainable Agricultural Development Strategy by improving rural livelihoods.
The specific project objectives are:
• Increase in local value-added of Armenian organic products
• Higher efficiency of relevant public and private sector institutions.

IMPROVING POLICY
Organic producers and processors need a clear and enabling legal environment to be productive.
Therefore OASI will support:
• the RA Ministry of Agriculture with the revision of the Law on organic agriculture and other regulatory documents
• the development of national standards for organic production and marketing based on demand.

DEVELOPING CAPACITIES
Following a needs assessment a capacity development plan for stakeholders in Armenian organic agriculture will be drafted.
For the promotion of organic technologies, extension services will be strengthened. Educational institutions will be supported through curricula development and a state-of-the-art textbook.

PROVIDING FINANCIAL SUPPORT
The transition from conventional
farming to organic agriculture can be difficult, especially for smallholders.
• Smaller grants are available for
smallholder farmers seeking to start, diversify or expand organic production.
• Bigger grants are available to
support already established organic farmers, co-operatives and processors for enhancing productivity and market access.

RAISING AWARENESS
To convince Armenian farmers and consumers about the benefits and value added of organic agriculture, an awareness raising campaign will be carried out.

ACCESSING MARKETS
Many organic producers still lack adequate market information or skills in labeling and packaging.
Therefore the OASI project will provide direct marketing assistance and establish linkages with Armenian buyers.

Linkages with interested European and other international companies will be created.

In addition, Armenian organic producers can participate in international organic trade fairs.

Specific attention is given towards women farmers, farmers’ groups, co-operatives and processors, youth and other vulnerable groups.
