Résumé
In Iraq, the agricultural sector has experienced a progressive decline that ended in a total collapse. After fatal wars, an unstable political situation and mismanagements, demographic growth, climatic conditions and water scarcity are the main factors explaining for that collapse. Nowadays, Iraq is catching up. Governmental interests and efforts have been recently growing up. The recent setting up of the National Centre for Organic Agriculture (NCOA) represents this new governmental trend. This study is aimed to give a clear picture of the Iraqi agriculture today, explore possibilities to develop organic agriculture in the current scenario and give prospects for the national centre for organic agriculture. The research strategy applied was based on the stakeholder consultation approach, mainly focused on the public sector that still controls all agricultural functions but production. The final SWOT was obtained after a tentative SWOT had been experimented with the stakeholder consultation. Through this study, we realized that there are good possibilities to develop organic agriculture in Iraq through the NCOA.
