About the Round Table on Organic Agriculture and Climate Change RTOACC

The Roundtable on Organic Agriculture and Climate Change RTOACC is a multi-stakeholder initiative. It was founded on December 16, 2009 in Copenhagen, at the United Nations Climate Change Conference. RTOACC brings together stakeholders and partners along the organic food production chain.  The activities are funded by the Food and Agriculture Organisation FAO.

The principal objectives of RTOACC are to:

  • Initiate, support and facilitate research on organic agriculture and climate change.
  • Advise the international community on organic agriculture and climate change issues,
  • Develop a measurement method to enable reliable quantification and certification of carbon sequestration in organic agriculture.
