The President of India, Droupadi Murmu, will inaugurate the first Global Symposium on Farmers’ Rights on September 12, 2023, at the ICAR Convention Centre, NASC Complex, at New Delhi. The symposium will be attended by eminent scientists, farmers, and resource persons from 59 countries across the globe.

The symposium is being organized by the Protection of Plant Varieties and Farmers’ Rights Authority (PPVFRA) under the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare. The objective of the symposium is to discuss and deliberate on the various aspects of farmers’ rights, including the conservation and sustainable use of plant genetic resources, the development and protection of plant varieties, and the fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use of plant genetic resources.

The symposium is expected to be a major event in the field of agriculture and will provide a platform for sharing knowledge and best practices on farmers’ rights. It is also expected to help in promoting international cooperation on this important issue.

Here are some of the topics that are likely to be discussed at the symposium:

  • The importance of farmers’ rights in ensuring food security and sustainable agriculture
  • The challenges facing farmers’ rights in the 21st century
  • The role of plant genetic resources in agriculture
  • The development and protection of plant varieties
  • The fair and equitable sharing of benefits arising from the use of plant genetic resources

The symposium is a timely event as it comes at a time when the world is facing a number of challenges, such as climate change, population growth, and food insecurity. The symposium is expected to provide valuable insights into how to address these challenges and ensure that farmers’ rights are protected.
