Cooperation Projects

GIs play a key role in the sustainable development of local communities. Deeply rooted in a given culture and traditional knowledge, GIs contribute to ensure the conservation of local natural resources and biodiversity. Moreover, GIs prevent the delocalization of production. A GI can only be produced in a given area which confers the product – by virtue of its climate, “terroir” and/or human factors – its specific characteristics.

oriGIn is involved in various technical assistance projects aimed at helping producers and communities take full advantages of the local GI sustainable development potential. oriGIn also advocates for an increase in multilateral and bilateral funds devoted to GI-related projects.
