Conditions for the combination of approaches

There are probably more possibilities of combining the two approaches to realizing Farmers' Rights. The important point in this context is that the approach chosen should not conflict with the principles of the stewardship approach, which has been the main avenue of the FAO since the issue was first addressed and which is central to the further existence of these vital resources for food security.
