The Farmers' Rights Project

Photo: Fulvio EccardiThe Farmers' Rights Project was initiated by the Fridtjof Nansen Institute (FNI) in 2005, with the aim of supporting the implementation of Farmers' Rights as they are recognized in the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.

The project's Phase 1 (2005-06) and 2 (2006-14) consisted of many different components, comprising research and surveys as well as more operational activities such as the establishment of this website.

By the end of 2014, FNI ended its involvement in the project. This was mainly because the project initiator was by then on leave from the FNI and there was no further project funding. As the project initiator is now back from leave, new efforts are undertaken to secure project funding and to upgrade, update and relaunch this website.
