Inventory of national measures, best practices and lessons learned from the realization of Farmers’ Rights, as set out in Article 9 of the International Treaty

About the Inventory

The 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 (the Inventory), was developed by the Ad Hoc Technical Expert Group on Farmers’ Rights, based on the mandate it received from the Governing Body at its Seventh Session.

In preparation for the Inventory, the Governing Body invited Contracting Parties and relevant stakeholders, especially farmers’ organizations, to submit views, experiences and best practices as examples for the national implementation of Article 9 of the International Treaty. The Inventory thus relies on the submissions received from the Contracting Parties and stakeholders. The focus is on measures and practices that have been or are in the process of being implemented.

More information on the Inventory is available here.

Purpose of the Inventory

The purpose of the Inventory is to present the range of measures and practices for the realization of Farmers’ Rights, so as to share, among Contracting Parties and interested stakeholders, experiences gained so far with, and lessons learned from, the realization of Farmers’ Rights, as set out in Article 9 of the International Treaty.

Contribute to the Inventory

Contracting Parties, farmer's organizations, stakeholders and relevant organizations may submit and/or update their experiences on the Implementation of Article 9 of the International Treaty using this template: EN - FR - ES - AR.

 

DISCLAIMER

The Expert Group did not evaluate or assess the measures and practices contained in the Inventory as to whether or not any measure and practice contributes to the realization of Farmers’ Rights. In reaching consensus on the structure of the Inventory, the experts recognized that Article 9 of the Treaty states that responsibility for realizing Farmers’ Rights rests with national governments.

Contracting Parties are invited to consider and adapt the ideas, practical activities, or experiences from the Inventory to implement Farmers’ Rights at the national level, as appropriate, but no particular item contained in the Inventory should be understood as being specifically required under Article 9 of the Treaty.
