dc.description.abstractThis thesis seeks to understand the connection between key actors in Zanzibar’s organic farming and organic tourism sectors, and discover the reason for their interaction. A case study approach is used through stakeholder analysis with the goal of uncovering the difficulties, common practices and socio-economical contributions of organic farming. 52 interviews were conducted with farming stakeholders. Key results are discovered from a holistic analysis of both organic sectors. 60% of organic farmers cited personal health concerns as their reason for abstaining from synthetic agrochemicals, 50% attributed it to their training, where trainers claimed that they opted to use compost due to the higher price of agrochemicals and lack of availability. Tourist hotels declared that they prefer organic produce as part of their eco-friendly initiatives and customer preferences. Areas of further consideration are given on international trade, competition, and characteristics of tourist destinations.en_US
