  No comments

From June 29th to July 1st this year, Mozambique hosted the 15th Southern and Eastern Africa Cotton Forum (SEACF), under the slogan: "Prospects for Organic Cotton in Africa" . This event brought together research institutions, public institutions, cotton companies and cotton producers from southern and eastern African countries, as well as experts from other parts of the world.

For IAOM, IP, this event is part of the subsector's strategy to make the value chain increasingly competitive, sustainable and aligned with the need to seek solutions that respond to current challenges and market dynamics.

The 15th session of SEACF touched on strategic and operational aspects relating to the production and certification of organic cotton, the socio-economic importance for Africa, improving income for producers in the family sector, sustainability and proposed steps to follow for greater promotion in Africa and introduction in Mozambique. The session's debates were based on the experiences of organic cotton producing countries and experts in the field.

The event also made it possible to publicize the opportunities and potential of Mozambique's cotton sub-sector for attracting new investments along the cotton value chain and to strengthen relations with the International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC), in order to continue technical collaboration to improve interventions in the sub-sector in Mozambique.
