UNIDROIT is an intergovernmental, Rome-based organisation specialising in the harmonisa­tion and modernisation of private law rules at the global level, through international treaties and soft law instruments in several areas. UNIDROIT has earned widespread recognition for its activities in the area of contract law, in particular with the UNIDROIT Principles of International Commercial Contracts. In partnership with FAO and IFAD, UNIDROIT prepared a Legal Guide on Contract Farming, released in 2015, which intends to promote good practices between farmers and buyers of agricultural commodities by enhancing knowledge and awareness of the legal regime applicable to contract farming operations.

With respect to land, a UNIDROIT Working Group is currently developing, in collaboration with FAO and IFAD, a future Legal Guide on Agricultural Land Investment Contracts. The Guide is consistent with the standards set in the VGGT, the CFS-RAI Principles and other international instruments. After four meetings and promotional events held in 2017 and 2018, the Working Group has produced a consolidated draft – the ALIC Zero Draft – which is submitted to extended consultations. The online consultation is open from 1 June until 30 September 2019 at: https://www.unidroit.org/work-in-progress/agricultural-land-investment/o...

This guide provides guidance on contract farming arrangements, from negotiation to conclusion, including performance and possible breach or termination of the contract. It provides a description of common contract terms and a discussion of legal issues and critical problems that may arise under various practical situations, illustrating how they may be treated under different legal systems.
