UNIDROIT WORK AND INSTRUMENTS IN THE FIELD OF AGRICULTURE

UNIDROIT WORK AND INSTRUMENTS IN THE FIELD OF AGRICULTURE

Unidroit participates in the global efforts intended to face the objectives of food security and strengthen the capacities of the agricultural production sector through its specific mandate and its expertise in formulating uniform private law rules, in synergy with the multilateral organisations working for agricultural development.

Several instruments adopted by Unidroit over the last decades dealing with international commercial contracts and trade financing (in particular leasing and factoring) are relevant in the areas of agricultural production and investment. In 2010, acknowledging the importance of this particular sector, the Unidroit General Assembly decided to include aspects of the private law of agricultural finance in the Work Programme of the Institute. The first initiative, laying the basis of the future work, was a Colloquium on "Promoting Investment in Agricultural Production: Private Law Aspects" held at Unidroit in Rome from 8 to 10 November 2011.

Since then, Unidroit has engaged in the preparation of rules to promote an enabling legal environment and best practices in contract farming relationships and in agricultural land investment contracts, and to facilitate the acquisition of high value equipment for agricultural production.

CONTRACT FARMING

Contract farming arrangements are increasingly used worldwide for the production and marketing of agricultural products.

The UNIDROIT/FAO/IFAD Legal Guide on Contract Farming intends to enhance knowledge and awareness of the legal regime applicable to contract farming operations and to promote good practices between farmers and buyers of agricultural commodities.
