Sowing Diversity = Harvesting Security


Diversity = Harvesting Security (SD=HS) program framework is part of Oxfam Novib’s (ON) Global Link on the right to sustainable livelihoods and is framed into a five year program. The goal is to uphold, strengthen and mainstream the rights and technical capacities of indigenous peoples and smallholder farmers, and to influence local to global policies and institutions on the sustainable use of plant genetic resources for food security and nutrition under the conditions of climate change. The objective is to help link diverse realities on the ground and feed this information into complex national and global policy processes.

The five year program is further developed into a comprehensive strategy based on four programmes to scale up work on seeds for food security and nutrition:  (1) Scaling Up Models;
(2) Farmer Seeds Enterprises (FSE); (3) Women Seeds and Nutrition; and (4) Governance and Knowledge Systems.

The SD=HS Programme Framework has been developed to help link diverse realities on the ground and feed this information into complex national and global policy processes. This will ensure that the sustainable use of plant genetic resources for food security and farmers’ rights are embedded in local to global food systems.

A participatory consultation has been conducted bringing together a range of high quality and long-term Oxfam Novib-Global Link’s partners and their members in the field of policy and practice on biodiversity management, intellectual property rights (IPR) with rights based approach to food security in the context of climate change.

These partners are: ANDES, Community Technology Development Trust (CTDT) –Community Climate Change Response (CCCR) (including EOSA, Li-Bird), the Centre for Agroecology and Food Security (CAFS) (incl.DDS), GRAIN, Action Group on Erosion, Technology and Concentration (ETC Group), the South East Asian Regional Initiative for Community Empowerment(SEARICE), South Centre, OSSI South, Third World Network (TWN) and CGN/Wageningen University-WUR.
