United Nations (2009):
The right to food. Seed policies and the right to food: enhancing agrobiodiversity and encouraging innovation
(New York: The United Nations)

Summary

This report explores how States could implement seed policies that contribute to the full realization of human rights. It identifies how research and development could best serve the poorest farmers in developing countries, and how commercial seed systems could be regulated to serve the right to food and ensure the right of all to enjoy the benefits of scientific progress. Finally, it examines how farmers’ seed systems could be best supported, in order to serve the interest of all in the preservation of agrobiodiversity.
