People in Need has been working in Moldova since 2003, implementing projects in the field of economic development, civil society, and youth development and education. Organic agriculture is one of the economic development programs of intervention and this sector is supported by providing knowledge and know-how transfer to farmers interested in organic agriculture; promoting the demand of organic products on domestic markets and encourage exports of organic products.  

Organic agriculture in Moldova has been supported by foreign projects since 2012.

Project Objectives

This project is building on the past experience of People In Need (PIN), a leading non-profit agency in the Moldovan sector of organic agriculture. The project focuses on capacity building of three farmer/consumer organisations, will support know-how of available experts employed with the private sector and will further work on public awareness regarding the organic sector.
