Capacity-building material for local and indigenous agricultural communities
The Global Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR), the Collaborative Programme of Participatory Plant Breeding in Mesoamerica, implemented in local communities of the Sierra de los Cuchumatanes by the Farmer Organization Asociación de Organizaciones de los Cuchumatanes (ASOCUCH) and the Foundation for Agricultural Technological and Forestry Innovation (FUNDIT), with the financial support of the Development Fund of Norway, present these capacity-building materials for local and indigenous agricultural communities on a matter that is of great importance nowadays: the need and importance of recognizing and implementing farmers’ rights.
They are available in Spanish and freely accessible here:
More capacity-building materials will be developed for smallholder farmers in other countries of Latin America and other regions, such as Asia, Africa and Near East.
