    Right to Food Handbooks 5. This handbook presents the basic process to be followed for monitoring policies, programmes and projects aimed at the right to food, starting from the components that distinguish it from a conventional monitoring framework: the basic content of the right to food, the State obligations and the principles of human rights. The content of this handbook is based on the FAO’s “Methods to monitor the human right to adequate food” (Volume I and Volume II). Besides presenting the framework for monitoring the right to food, it provides a deep insight on the indicators -structural, process and outcome indicators- as well as on the monitoring of policies and programmes.

    This volume outlines a simple and practical way to analyse the design and implementation of food and nutrition security (FNS) policies and programmes from a right to food perspective. The right to food approach, as an instrument to help formulate FNS policies and programmes, is emphasized. The primary focus is on national overarching FNS policies. The question of how to assess sector policies that may have direct or indirect impacts on food security and nutrition security is also addressed. Good policies need an enabling implementation environment, which includes evidence-based decisions, adequate financial and human resources and sound governance. These aspects are addressed within the context of the formulation and implementation of FNS policies. Programmes are operational instruments designed to implement policies. FNS policies with strong right to food underpinnings should give rise to action plans and programmes that translate such underpinnings into practice. For this reason, FN S programmes are analysed from a right to food perspective to assess whether are developed and implemented with full respect for right to food principles. The analytical and methodological approaches outlined here can be applied at two different stages: (a) when an FNS policy or programme is being formulated for the first time, or (b) when an existing FNS policy or programme and its impacts and implementation process are being assessed. This reference guide complements existing relevant methodo logical reference guides, such as are found in the Right to Food Methodological Toolbox.
