Abstract

Sustainable development is a modern concept of economic development, which enables long term
economic growth rates to be achieved with better utilization of scarce natural resources and a
better quality of life for the population to preserve the environment and reduce social inequalities. Care
for the quality and way of life of the population integrated into this concept takes into account the needs
in the context of intense globalization and fast-growing markets of present and future generations.
Among the economic activities, it is necessary to identify those that contribute most to the economic
growth and sustainable development in terms of development opportunities. Considering that the Republic
of Serbia occupies a favorable geographical position, has significant natural resources and a
good workforce, agriculture stands out as one of the economic activities that significantly contribute to
economic growth, with recognizable development potentials.
Organic production makes a significant contribution to achieving the goals of a green economy and
green growth. Thanks to well-defined principles and standards, as well as a certification system, its
positive impact on the health and life of all living things, the environment and natural resources is
enabled. Both of these concepts are based on the same principles and offer numerous opportunities
for improving the standard of living, developing underdeveloped countries and achieving sustainable
development. In European countries, organic production is a model for sustainable rural development.
The intention of this paper is to investigate the possibilities and necessary incentive measures for the
sustainable development of organic agriculture in the Republic of Serbia and compare the organic food
production growth in European countries and in Serbia.
