This section will reflect on the state of realization of Farmers' Rights in different countries and regarding the various elements of these rights. The key barriers to achieving Farmers' Rights as well as possibilities to overcome them will also be highlighted here.
Despite the huge challenges ahead, efforts are underway with regard to all measures highlighted in the provisions on Farmers' Rights in the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture and with regard to all options provided in the Options to encourage, guide and promote the realization of Farmers' Rights that was initiated by the Treaty's Governing Body and will soon officially be published by the Secretariat.
Here, we intend to provide an analysis of the contributions that have been submitted for the Inventory of national measures, best practices and lessons learned, that was initiated by the Treaty’s Governing Body, and will include a review of relevant literature per category and country. In this context we intend to identify barriers and bottlenecks as well as possibilities to overcome them for the realization of Farmers’ Rights. The analysis depends on additional funding, which we hope to secure soon.
