Success stories on participation in decision-making

There are in general few examples of legislation on farmers' participation, although some countries in the South have extensive legislation in this regard. All the same, actual participation in decision-making processes seems to be marginal, according to survey respondents, and is often confined to large-scale farmers who are normally not engaged in the maintenance of plant genetic diversity.

In the North, the participation of farmers in decision-making processes is more common, but without reference to specific laws or policies. However, farmers in the North claim that their influence is now decreasing, due to their countries' commitments to international agreements.
