Limiting access to seeds means limiting food production and access, and putting biodiversity at risk.
This video explains the importance of intellectual property for seeds. It was produced by STEPS America Latina to inform debates in Argentina about the corporate control and patenting of seeds.
The topic is addressed by the Argentina team in the ISSC-funded ‘Pathways’ Network, which aims to intervene in processes of transformation in 6 countries around the world.
See the Intellectual Property and Seeds website for more details on the Argentina part of the project.
