    The Human Right to Adequate Food in the Global Strategic Framework for Food Security and Nutrition – A Global Consensus 2013
    The Global Strategic Framework for Food Security and Nutrition (GSF) is the first global framework adopted by consensus, by governments, which systematically mainstreams the right to adequate food and human rights into policies relevant to food security and nutrition at the global, regional and national levels. The GSF requires all stakeholders to implement and ensure the coherence of these policies with regard to the right to adequate food. This publication documents the consensus reached in the context of the GSF with respect to recommendations that are particularly interesting from a right to food perspective. It builds largely on agreed language from the GSF as a basis for advocacy and information work. It also offers important suggestions to stakeholders on how to translate the global consensus into practice at the national level, notably by presenting a variety of experiences and case studies which demonstrate the importance of a human rights-based approach to food security and nutrition. Moreover, the document presents concrete recommendations put forth in the GSF in order to implement specific policies aimed for vulnerable groups or particular issues. The document concludes by highlighting three areas where the GSF is particularly important from a human rights perspective, namely: its contribution to understanding the primacy of human rights in the field of policies relevant for food security and nutrition; its contribution to the human rights coherence in food s ecurity and nutrition actions; and its emphasis on the strengthening of human rights-based monitoring and accountability mechanisms.

    The right to adequate food in emergency programmes 2014

    The right to adequate food in emergency programmes demonstrates the relevance of the right to adequate food and related human rights standards to the work on emergencies and provides guidance on how to integrate the standards into emergency programmes and projects. It answers the questions: what does the right to adequate food mean in the context of emergencies? Why is it important for emergency programmes to adopt the human rights-based approach? who are the rights-holders and the duty-bearers in situations of emergency? How may the right to adequate food and related human rights principles be integrated and applied in emergency programmes and projects? The paper attempts to respond to these crucial questions by referring to normative instruments, strategic frameworks, operational tools and practices of FAO and its partners in the work on emergencies. With an argument for the importance of the human rights-based approach to breaking the cycle of crises and humanitarian interventions, the paper could be quite relevant to resilience-building programmes that aim to improve the capacities of individuals, households, communities and states to deal with natural and human-induced disasters. Produced in the framework of the joint organizational output within FAO on integrating gender, nutrition and the right to food in work on emergencies, the paper can be of use to the broader humanitarian and development community.
