The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in Rural Areas (UNDROP), adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2018, is a landmark declaration that recognises the rights of peasants and their unique relationship with nature. In this podcast, part one, we share key insights into the history, successes and challenges of UNDROP to raise wider awareness of this important tool and how we can use it. We believe that the more we share information about UNDROP in our communities, movements and with policy makers, the more it can protect us in legal and political channels.
This month, on 11 October, the United Nations Human Rights Council took a historic step by voting in favour of a resolution to establish a UN Working Group to focus on the effective implementation of UNDROP. This important victory for peasants will be discussed in part two of the podcast.
