The right to food guidelines

Book
Subtitle: 
[Information papers and case studies]

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 right  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  information 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 in governments, development agencies, civil  society and academia concerned with realizing the right to food should find  the publication a valuable aid to decision-making.
