Résumé
In recent years, interest of governments and farmers’ associations about organic farming has rapidly increased worldwide, so that it has become one of the fastest growing agricultural sectors. Studies about organic agriculture in Algeria are very few, but interest about it is rising in the country, and - as a response to this need - we have prepared a proposal based on the new Regulation (EU) 2018/848. This study first outlines the situation of legislation on organic farming in the world. It then describes the local conditions in Algeria and the need of having a national legal framework concerning organic production. As an innovation, it includes a number of environmentally-friendly practices and labour “ethical rules” to make the proposal more compliant with the original “philosophy” of organic agriculture. As a result, the Law proposal includes 52 Articles divided into 9 Chapters inspired by the EU Regulation with additional requirements related to environment sustainability and workers’ rights. An adaptation that we believe would be helpful also for a possible, future negotiation for equivalence with the EU legislation. Finally, this work is just the starting point for a series of studies and research projects to help the growth of the organic farming sector in the largest African country.
