Farmers Rights in the International Legal Architecture for Food and Agriculture

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


Article 9 of the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture (ITPGRFA) recognises the enormous contribution that the local and indigenous communities and farmers of all regions of the world, particularly those in the centres of origin and crop diversity, have made and will continue to make to the conservation and development of plant genetic resources which constitute the basis of food and agriculture production throughout the world. This webinar examines the links between farmers’ rights (as established in the ITPGRFA) and related international treaties alongside the right to food and gender perspectives on farmers’ rights.
