About ICCOA

ICCOA- International Competence Centre for Organic Agriculture

ICCOA was started as a knowledge centre for all stakeholders involved in the organic sector and was registered as a society in 2004. Today ICCOA is India’s leading networking organization. It has full-fledged division and expertise on policy advocacy, project management, Capacity building, market linkage and event management. It is working Pan India with large projects in over 16 States, reaching out to over 28,122 farmers directly in the organic certification program.

In addition, through the many other projects undertaken, it has connected to 71,485 farmers across an area of 1,74,302 Acres. It organizes India’s biggest International Organic Trade Fair and conference program annually since over 12 years.

Biovillage - improving livelihoods

ICCOA initiated a unique concept of biovillage that goes beyond just organic farming and certification. The model aims to increase the farmer's income and living standards by integrating seven other components such as agriculture/ horticulture, animal husbandry, production of organic inputs, bio gas units, basic processing facilities, rural entrepreneurs, agri and eco-tourism. The farmers and entrepreneurs will take up these activities within the village, thereby reducing the costs of farming inputs, processing centres, marketing and enhance marketing opportunities

Rural entrepreneurs are encouraged to start community compost units, primary processing centres, which will provide employment to the village youth. Farm stays and home stays are becoming popular with eco tourism initiatives and this will be leveraged to supplement the income of the farmer. The biovillage model aims to build self- sufficient communities using sustainable organic farming practices.
