    Assessment of the right to food
    Right to Food Handbooks 7
    2014
    Right to Food Handbooks 7. This handbook provides practical information and tools for conducting a right to food assessment as a first step in a strategy to ensure this right and to take the appropriate measures accordingly with the obligation of progressive realization of this right. The content of this handbook is based on the FAO's “Guide to Conducting a Right to Food Assessment”. An assessment of the right to food should include an analysis of the causes of food and nutritional insecurity and should answer the following questions: who suffers food insecurity and vulnerability? Where are they located? What are the causes for their food insecurity or vulnerability? The assessment should also consider the legal, political, and institutional frameworks, civil society participation and budget analysis.

    This publication presents coherent and systematic information and analysis about: the current food and nutrition security situation in the CARICOM Region and in CARICOM Member States, and the relevant legal, policy and institutional environments in the Region with respect to the protection and realization of the right to food. The assessment consists of four parts: (a) an analysis of the current food and nutrition security situation and recent trends, focusing on identifying structural inequi ties with respect to the protection and realization of the right to food, (b) an analysis of the legal environment for the right to food with reference to international law obligations, constitutional provisions, relevant domestic legislation and human rights institutions in CARICOM Member States, (c) an inventory of regional policies that relate to the right to food, and (d) an inventory of governmental institutions and non-governmental organizations with mandates and activities related to the protection and realization of the right to food. The intended uses of the findings and conclusions of the assessment are: • Identify cross-cutting actions to strengthen the right to food underpinnings of regional and national food and nutrition security policies and action plans; • Provide CARICOM Member States with key elements to conduct right to food assessments; • Provide regional and national civil society organizations with relevant information to aid their participation in foo d and nutrition security policy formulation and to contribute to the adherence of right to food principles; • Provide FAO staff with relevant knowledge and information to increase the effectiveness and relevance of policy assistance offered to CARICOM and its Member States.
