The Right to Food Guidelines: Information Papers and Case Studies
Food & Agriculture Org., 2006 - Health & Fitness - 219 pages
This publication presents seven information papers and a case studies report that were prepared during the negotiation process preceding the adoption of the "Voluntary Guidelines to support the progressive realization of the rights to adequate food in the context of national food security". The information papers cover issues that were controversial during negotiations, or complex legal questions for which clarification was requested. The case studies report summarizes the outcome of studies commissioned in five countries to gather about practical in-country experiences with different policies and programmes that are conducive to realizing the population's right to adequate food. The full text of the "Voluntary Guidelines" is also included. Development practitioners and governments, development agencies, civil society and academia concerned with realizing the right to food should find the publication a valuable aid to decision-making.
