First Meeting of the Ad Hoc Technical Expert Group on Farmers’ Rights

Italy (Rome)

By Article 9 of the International Treaty”:

Contracting Parties recognize the enormous contribution that the local and indigenous communities and farmers of all regions of the world, particularly those in the centres of origin and crop diversity, have made and will continue to make for the conservation and development of plant genetic resources which constitute the basis of food and agriculture production throughout the world ”.

At its Seventh Session, the Governing Body of the International Treaty, through Resolution 7/2017, decided to establish an Ad Hoc Technical Expert Group (AHTEG) on Farmers’ Rights to:

i. produce an inventory of national measures that may be adopted, best practices and lessons learned from the realization of Farmers’ Rights, as set out in Article 9 of the International Treaty; and

ii. based on the inventory, develop options for encouraging, guiding and promoting the realization of Farmers’ Rights as set out in Article 9 of the International Treaty.

The first meeting of the AHTEG was held at FAO headquarters (German Room), from 11 to 14 September 2018. The meeting was opened at 9.30 a.m. on Tuesday, 11 September 2018.
