Civil Society Organizations' approaches to Farmers' Rights

In many countries, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), particularly NGOs and Farmers' Organizations, are central driving forces in the work for the realization of Farmers' Rights. Partly they are active on the policy level, seeking to influence legislation and policies in a direction more conducive for Farmers' Rights. Partly they work directly with farmers in order to realize Farmers' Rights in practice at the local level. Thus, they have accumulated considerable experience and reflections on Farmers' Rights.

We invite CSOs involved in Farmers' Rights related to crop genetic diversity to present their work and approaches to Farmers' Rights on this site.  Contact >
