Sikkim Chief Minister Pawan Chamling has called for making organic agriculture more fashionable and exciting to achieve a 100 per cent organic world. 
 
Addressing a news conference at the Chamber of Deputies in the Italian Parliament in Rome today, Chamling said it took Sikkim over a decade to transform from a state which used chemical fertilizers to one which is now a fully organic.

Based on my long experience and association with the Organic initiative, I can tell you in all good faith and confidence that a 100 per cent organic world is possible. If we could do it in Sikkim, there is no reason why policy makers, farmers and community leaders cannot do the same elsewhere in the world," he said.


Sikkim has won the "Oscar for best policies", conferred by the Food and Agriculture Organisation for the world's best policies promoting agroecological and sustainable food systems.
