For almost 14 years, farmer and civil organizations, as well as other stakeholders, have struggled for the rights of peasants and people working in rural areas to be fully recognized by the international community, and their implementation to become an obligation for national governments.
The negotiation process has been long, where some countries have not supported the need to recognize peasants’ rights. But farmer and civil society organizations have not wavered in their intention to reiterate the importance of their past, present and future contributions in conserving biological and genetic resources, improving and making them available for further research and innovation; and call for the recognition of their human rights as peasants, based on that premise.
