International launch of Right to Food and Nutrition Watch 2016
Peasant and indigenous communities, who have been the developers and guardians of seeds for millennia, are finding their rights to save, use, exchange and sell seeds overshadowed by a corporate agenda that prioritises profit over human rights and the sustainable maintenance of nature.
Rose Williams, Biowatch Director, will be a panelist at the international launch of “Keeping Seeds in Peoples’ Hands”, the civil society Right to Food and Nutrition Watch 2016. The publication, which will be launched on October 13 at the FAO Headquarters in Rome, will shed light on the existing threats to peasant seed systems and the accelerated destruction of biodiversity.
