THE FARMERS' RIGHTS PROJECT:

Research project on civil society strategies for the implementation of Farmers' Rights

This sub-project examines conditions for effective implementation of the provisions on Farmers' Rights in the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA), with a focus on strategies of Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), as these are central actors in many developing countries, pushing for and shaping policies on Farmers’ Rights, and initiating projects for the purpose.

It is vital to identify the patterns of CSO influence that contribute to the formulation and implementation of policies and programmes for the effective realisation of Farmers’ Rights. In this sub-project, the influence of CSOs on these processes will be analysed in three developing countries where progress in Farmers’ Rights has been achieved: India, the Philippines and Zambia.

The achievements will be analysed with regard to their effectiveness in terms of the realisation of Farmers’ Rights combined with their relevance for poverty alleviation, before the influence of CSOs on these results will be analysed in detail. The patterns of CSO influence will be identified and the conditions for these patterns determined as basis for an analysis of the scope for generalisation with regard to other developing countries.
