The book is a joint publication of the European Union Group of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM EU;, the Research Institute of Organic Agriculture (FiBL, and the Mediterranean Institute for Agronomic Research CIHEAM-IAMB (

The book was compiled in the framework of the "Mind the CAP" campaign, which is co-funded by the European Union.
