The IFAD-Oxfam program “Putting Lessons into Practice: Scaling up Peoples’ Biodiversity Management for Food Security” was implemented from 2012 until 2015. The goal of the program was 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, under conditions of climate change. This global program was implemented jointly by Oxfam, ANDES in Peru, SEARICE in Vietnam and CTDT in Zimbabwe.
