In Andersen, Regine and Tone Winge (eds), Realising Farmers' Rights to Crop Genetic Resources: Success Stories and Best Practices. Abingdon (UK), Routledge, 2013, pp. 117-133.
This chapter shows how benefit sharing as envisioned under the Plant Treaty can take place through the adding of value to produce, marketing efforts, knowledge sharing and collaboration between farmers and between farmers and scientists. It tells the story of how farmers in the hills around Pokhara in central-western Nepal became aware of the value of the local crop genetic diversity and how their activities have led to improved livelihoods and contributed to the realisation of Farmers’ Rights.
