South Centre intervention to the UPOV Consultative Committee on the issue of interrelations with the FAO ITPGRFA

The South Centre participates as an observer in the ongoing process for the “identification of possible areas of interrelations between the FAO ITPGRFA, especially its Article 9 on Farmers’ Rights, and relevant instruments of UPOV and WIPO.” It seeks to promote an outcome that facilitates the enactment and implementation of legislation by members of UPOV Union, WIPO and contracting parties of the FAO ITPGRFA that facilitates the full and fair exercise of farmers’ rights.
