HOW TO REALIZE FARMERS' RIGHTS AT THE NATIONAL LEVEL:

Workshop module for free use

A workshop module comprising contents highlighted at this website will soon be offered for free use here. It is aimed at bringing stakeholders together, broadening their understanding of the topic, framing a fruitful dialogue, identifying required measures, and providing inspiration for joint action. The workshop is planned for three days and is targeted at all relevant stakeholders. It is largely designed as an inter-active workshop seeking to enable participants to frame their own process of implementing Farmers' Rights.

A first draft was successfully tested in the Philippines in November 2007 in cooperation with the sectorial GTZ project 'People, Food and Biodversity' which is implemented on behalf of the German BMZ, and the Department of Agriculture, the Philippines. A modified version based on the feedback from the Philippines will be distributed among interested individuals for comments and feedback. If you are interested in this draft version and would like to provide us with your comments, please contact us. Contact >

The final version of the module will be posted here in 2012.
