Pilot Project to Promote Organic Consumption in State of Rajasthan (ProOrganic)
CUTS with financial assistance from Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC) is implementing a two-year project. The objective of the project is to promote organic consumption in the State of Rajasthan (India) covering six major agriculture potential districts by awareness generation, sensitisation, capacity-building and advocacy activities.
Lok Sahbhagi Sansthan is working on this project with CUTS from April 2016 scheduled to end April 2018.
The following works are being undertaken by LSS (NGO) under this project with farmers:
1.Conducting Technical Sessions
2.Conducting Exposure visits
Increased awareness is expected to result in increased consumer demand, which will further push demand for availability and affordability of organic products contributing towards decreasing health hazards of consumers.
The project is expected to result in better informed consumers and farmers about organic consumption and farming and advocating for better policies and enforcement thereof by sensitising policy makers in the State. This will boost organic farming and consumption in the State and in the long run will provide sustainable environment and lifestyle.
