ONLINE RESOURCE: Farmers' Rights
The website http://www.farmersrights.org/ is about Farmers' Rights (FR) as they are addressed in the International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture. Farmers' Rights are basically about enabling farmers to continue their work as stewards and innovators of agricultural biodiversity, and about recognizing and rewarding them for their contribution to the global pool of genetic resources.
It contains information about the state of FR, a legislation database, best practices and other resources.
