Since the entry into force of the Plant Treaty, Farmers’ Rights have been a hot topic for negotiations in the Treaty’s Governing Body. What should the contents be, more precisely? And how to realize Farmers’ Rights? Here you can read about the negotiations at each of the sessions of the Governing Body and about the inter-sessional processes providing the points of departure for those negotiations. As Farmers’ Rights are affected by other international regimes as well, a brief overview of relevant processes is offered.
