    Land Tenure Working Paper 15. This publication brings to light the existing linkages between land tenure and the realization of the right to food.

The document presents the legal implications of the right to food at national level and provides a series of examples on the implementation of human rights principl es and obligations into land tenure systems, policies, and institutional frameworks.
