United Nations FAO Project: Organic Agriculture in Mauritius

I recently traveled to Mauritius as a legal consultant to a United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) project to support the African island nation's transition to organic farming.

In my capacity as the International Consultant on Organic Agriculture Legislation, I am helping Ministry of Agro-Industry officials and a national team of consultants to create a new national law regulating organic production, processing and marketing in Mauritius (similar to the USDA organic laws in the United States).

As the next step in the project, I will help finalize the new Mauritius organic agriculture legislation and travel to Mauritius later this year to discuss the creation of organic implementing regulations.
