oriGIn last General Assembly – held in Treviso in October 2017 – approved a “GIs sustainability strategy”.
Following this, oriGIn concluded an agreement with the Food Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) to implement this strategy with pilot-test GIs. The project provides the adaptation of the overall strategy to two products in Central America and Africa (we are currently in the process of selecting them), taking into account local market requirements and needs.
Through this project, oriGIn will be in a position to further develop tools to support GIs groups to engage in sustainability strategies as well as to prioritize their objectives and needs. We will also make recommendations on existing sustainability evaluation tools, adjusting them as well as creating new ones.
