Agricultural Biodiversity, Intellectual Property Rights and Farmers Rights

Rights and Farmers' Rights Vandana Shiva Under pressure from the US and to meet the requirements of the TRIPs agreement, new intellectual property rights legislation is being introduced in the area of plant genetic resources. Against this, people's organisations and others are fighting to protect farmers' rights to their biodiversity and to survival, as well as the freedom of scientists to work for the removal of hunger rather than for corporate profits. This paper describes the conflict between farmers and the transnational seed industry, and outlines a people's charter of farmers' rights.
