International Seed Treaty

8th session of the Governing Body, FAO, Rome, 11 - 16 November 2019

Farmers call on Treaty to take into account UNDROP, promote biodiverse peasant seed systems respecting collective rights, reset the expert group on Farmers' Rights, and ensure Industry pays for real benefits

Meeting ends in deadloock on the MLS but agrees follow-up on Farmers' Rights and the Conservation & Sustainable Use of PGRFA. Fully implementing these Articles (5, 6 & 9) could prove lifeline for the Treaty?
