Organic agriculture in the Pacific Region

Often in the Pacific region we think of organic agriculture as being either simply traditional farming or as being a certification system, but it is broader than that — organic agriculture is a production system that sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. It relies on ecological processes, biodiversity and cycles adapted to local conditions, rather than the use of inputs with adverse effects. Business reporter ROPATE VALEMEI speaks with Karen Mapusua, co-ordinator of the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC)'s Pacific Organic and Ethical Trade Community, on the challenges and development of organic agriculture.
