Promote understanding and raise awareness of the importance of Farmers’ Rights.
A broad range of possible measures may be used to promote understanding and raise awareness of the overall concept and importance of Farmers’ Rights. Such measures include, for example, global, regional and national consultations or dialogue platforms, awareness campaigns, use of media and capacity building materials, and various forms of presentations to representatives of organizations, producers, and citizens in general.
Further possibilities include to use conferences and public events focusing on the conservation and sustainable use of PGRFA to highlight the concept and importance of Farmers’ Rights, or to set up alliances, partnerships and campaigns.
Women and men may have different information needs or use different information channels and forms of communication. By taking this into account in planning and implementation of awareness-raising events, objectives may be more effectively achieved.
