The Farmers' Rights Project

Photo: Fulvio EccardiThe Farmers' Rights Project was initiated by the Fridtjof Nansen Institute (FNI) in 2005, with the aim of supporting the implementation of Farmers' Rights as they are recognized in the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture.

The project's Phase 1 (2005-06) and 2 (2006-14) consisted of many different components, comprising research and surveys as well as more operational activities such as the establishment of this website.

By the end of 2014, FNI ended its involvement in the project, but in order to ensure the continued availability and use of the results and resources contained in this Farmers' Rights Resource Website, it was agreed to transfer the responsibility for its maintenance and updating to Oikos - Organic Norway. This is because the project initiator and leader from the FNI is now working with Oikos. Oikos, being already engaged for many years in activities to promote Farmers Rights, will use the results from the project so far and ensure further information exchange on relevant developments and research, in this Phase 3 of the Farmers' Rights Project.
