Organic farming is an overarching topic within the SeeNet II Programme: the enhancement of rural areas and nature; the development of agricultural policies and their regulatory framework in the Balkans and in terms of EU integration; the cooperation with Italians who have been working in the fields of sustainable rural development and certification of organically farmed produce; a new food culture stimulating rural tourism and heritage foods; small medium enterprises, as some Balkan companies also invest in this sector.

The decentralised cooperation Programme SeeNet II, led by the region of Tuscany and co-financed by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, involves 6 Regions, the Autonomous province of Trento, Italian civil society and 47 local authorities in Sout-east Europe. Osservatorio Balcani e Caucaso is the partner for analysis and information dissemination
