Concerns about environmental conditions that are increasingly damaged, especially agriculture due to chemical practices, agricultural development that is less able to liberate and prosper farmers, and unfair trade practice, have motivated various Indonesian people to tackle the problem.
From various ideas, field experiences, and the work of regional and global networks, the initiators took the initiative to form associations to strengthen the organic agriculture and fair trade movement.
Organic farming can overcome the problem of environmental marginalization and encourage farmers’ sovereignty. Meanwhile, fair trade practices become a bridge for trade system practices that liberate and prosper farmers and other actors. Therefore, to accommodate these efforts, the Indonesian Organic Alliance was established.
The Indonesian Organic Alliance (AOI) is a civil society organization incorporated as an association, non-profit and independent. AOI was founded in 2002 and currently has 122 members, consisting of 43 NGOs, 26 companies, 16 farmer organizations, and 37 individuals spread across 18 provinces in Indonesia.
