    O direito humano à alimentação adequada no Marco Estratégico Global para a Segurança Alimentar e Nutricional – Consenso global 2014
    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 th e 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 n utrition. 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 securi ty and nutrition actions; and its emphasis on the strengthening of human rights-based monitoring and accountability mechanisms.

    Social protection and an enabling environment for the right to adequate food
    Right to Food Thematic Study 5
    2014
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This thematic study takes a retrospective glance at social protection over a span of a decade from 2004 to 2014. It presents developments from the perspective of Guidelines 8, 13, 14 and recommended measures for international cooperation and partnership necessary for promoting the right to adequate food. It presents the trajectory of a human rights-based approach to social protection across global and regional policy spaces taking stock of the presence of non-state actors and the emergence of in clusive platforms for multi-stakeholders to engage in policy and implementation of programmes. It highlights opportunities for technical cooperation, knowledge exchange, and financial assistance for social protection and points to the momentum for nationally determined social protection floors with challenges of financing and coherence as regards capacities and commitments of States. The study also looks at the use of social protection in short and long term food security interventions contexts and the emerging evidence of its impact. It suggests the need for looking at processes in addition to outcomes, in particular those that bear upon issues related to accountability, grievance mechanisms, and vulnerable groups.

    International dimensions of the right to adequate food
    Right to Food Thematic Study 7
    2014
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The Right to Food Guidelines provide practical tools for the implementation of the right to adequate food primarily in the context of national food security. However, in recognition of the actual and potential national-level effects of international economic transactions and development and humanitarian cooperation, they further lay down a human rights-based framework for relevant international measures, actions and commitments. A review of the implementation of the Right to Food Guidelines shou ld therefore have a component on its international dimensions. In order to support the ten-year retrospective on the Right to Food Guidelines within the Committee on World Food Security in 2014, the Right to Food Team conducted a series of seven thematic studies on the implementation of the Guidelines. The present study reviews the progress made and the challenges faced over the ten years in the areas of international trade and investment, development and humanitarian cooperation policies, and international development loans and debts from the perspectives of the right to adequate food. It looks at relevant practical developments in the context of international cooperation and global governance on the basis of human rights-based frameworks for the different policy areas. The study can be of use to FAO staff and its national and international partners working on food security in general and the right to food in particular.
