Voluntary Guidelines to Support the Progressive Realization of the Right to Adequate Food in the Context of National Food Security, Adopted by the 127th Session of the FAO Council, November 2004
Food & Agriculture Org., 2005 - Business & Economics - 37 pages
The objective of the Voluntary Guidelines is to provide practical guidance to States in their implementation of the progressive realization of the right to adequate food in the national context of food security, in order to achieve the goals of the WorldFood Summit Plan of Action. They provide an additional instrument to combat hunger and poverty and to accelerate attainments of the Millennium Development Goals. The Voluntary Guidelines, adopted by the FAO Council in November 2004, represent the first attempt by governments to interpret an economic, social and cultural right and to recommend actions to be undertaken for this realization. Moreover, they represent a step towards integrating human rights into the work of agencies dealing with food and agriculture.--Publisher's description.
