Impact, measuring organic performance

10 am to 11.30 am, Hall Shanghai (NCC East), BIOFACH Congress

Turnover and areal are common measures to look at progress of organic. However, how do we measure the contribution of organic agriculture, e.g. to the SDGs? Can everything we’d like to see as impact be measured? How do we look at performance? What needs still to be done to get the full picture. Where are the limitations and where is organic performing differently from what is commonly believed?
