It focuses on smallholders in developing countries and in countries of economic transition, but there is also coverage of and comparisons with developed countries. It covers market-oriented approaches and challenges for OA as part of high-value chains and as agro-ecologically based development for improving food security. It demonstrates the often unrecognized roles that organic farming can play in climate change, food security and sovereignty, carbon sequestration, cost internalizations, ecosystems services, human health and the restoration of degraded landscapes.--COVER."@en ;
