img01On 28 January 2021, Ms Priscila Andrade, UNIDROIT Legal Officer, presented UNIDROIT’s work and instruments in the area of Private Law and Agricultural Development to a group of students of the School of Law, University of Washington (UW).

 

 

 

 

 

The online lecture was part of the “Global Development Law & Policy Workshop”, organised by Professor Ms Randi Hedin and held within the “Law of Sustainable Development Graduate Program”.

 

Among the topics covered were: UNIDROIT’s role, mandate and general working methods; the UNIDROIT/FAO/IFAD Legal guide on Contract Farming; the Legal Guide on Agricultural Land Investment Contracts (the ALIC Guide), as well as the new project on Legal Structures of Agricultural Enterprises. In particular, the purpose and content of each chapter of the ALIC Guide was presented to explain how the Guide may contribute to sustainable development and more responsible investment in agricultural land. Also illustrated was how the ALIC Guide contributes to the implementation of other relevant international instruments, such as the “Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT)”, the “Principles for Responsible Investment in Agriculture and Food Systems (CFS RAI Principles)” and the “United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights”.
