Résumé :
Organic agriculture aims at developing self-reliant and environmentally-sound farming systems, which can improve the economic and social situation of those who participate in the production, processing and marketing processes. This study was based upon a survey conducted in Lebanon in March-April 2002. The survey covered the different interest groups involved, or likely to become involved, in the organic sector, namely : organic farmers, consumers, shop owners and institutions. The identification of requirements, strengths and weaknesses throughout the organic production, processing and marketing chain allowed proposing options for the development of the sector over the short, medium and long-term. Results essentially showed that while public institutions were neither interested nor equipped to promote organic agriculture, a number of pioneer and educated farmers and a few non-governmental organizations were quite active in the sector.
