Farmers’ rights web resource

I just came across this website on farmers’ rights as they are addressed in the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture, thanks to a news feed from the Communications Initiative.

The site provides extensive background on farmers’ rights and their role in agricultural development, a database of legislation on farmers’ rights, examples of best practices, and a practical guide to realising farmers’ rights.

It looks like a really useful resource for anyone interested in the subject, and is a valuable contribution to efforts to ensure farmers’ rights are more widely recognised and implemented.

The site has been developed by the Farmers’ Rights Project of the Fridtjof Nansen Institute (FNI), brought to you with the support of the GTZ project People, Food and Biodiversity which is implemented on behalf of BMZ, Germany.
