Brazil launches national organic crop policy

Brazil has launched its “national agro-ecology and organic crop production strategy”, Pnapo. Decree 7794 governing the policy was issued in the official gazette this month. Stakeholders and government have held several discussions since 2010 to elaborate a policy to facilitate “a more rational use of public resources for the sector”. New financing mechanisms will be made available for growers among other items. The Ministry of Agriculture is among the entities implementing the plan. The guiding instrument for Pnapo will be the national organic production plan, the Planapo, which includes a national commission and an inter-ministerial chamber, the Ministry says. The commission will be composed of 14 government bodies including the Ministries of Agriculture, Rural Development, Health, the Environment, and Science and Technology, and 14 civil society bodies.
