Your fears and hopes regarding Germanys Organic plan: going 30% Organic till 2030
About the survey: The EU has set the target of achieving 25% organic farmland in 2030, and some Member States are even more ambitious, like Germany that wants to achieve 30%. This is a great chance and also a challenge. Several governments have set up a strategic planning process to achieve the targets, with support of scientists and with varying degree of stakeholder involvement. IFOAM Organics Europe, together with the German Thuenen-Institute of Organic Farming, would like to ask you about your hopes and fears regarding policy actions for achieving the organic targets in your country. The data will be used for a report for IFOAM Organics Europe, as well as serve as input for the discussion on the German organic action plan in 2023. We would like to invite you to answer the 10 questions as best as you can. You don’t need to provide details. Headline information and bullet points are sufficient. We only ask open questions, so you are free in the way you answer. It will not take more than 30 minutes of your valuable time and will be a big contribution to the design of organic action plans in the EU. A report will be provided to you through IFOAM Organics Europe in the beginning of 2023. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the recent report by the Thuenen institute on policy support for organic farming in Europe. It contains a section on organic action plans, which may be a useful resource for you. Your answers may build on the information that is already in this report.
