Ogawa, Japan’s early efforts to promote organic agriculture date back to 1971 when concerns about public safety arose following a national push to modernise agriculture. The promotion of organic agriculture in Ogawa has helped deliver multiple benefits, including reducing pollution, conserving biodiversity, and stimulating regional economic development. Furthermore, the town’s organic farmers have adopted renewable energy technologies that can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and achieve additional co-benefits for the climate.
