Re: Invitation to an open discussion on the political outcome document of the ICN2

Hartwig de Haen

I wish to add a further comment regarding the right to food which I forgot to include in my submission earlier today. 

I would suggest to recognize the right to food more explicitly as part of good governnce in the political outcome document. In article 8, in addition to simply recalling the existence of the International Covenant on ESC rights and the Voluntary Guidelines on the Right to Food, the document could refer to the obligations of various stakeholders derived from the right to food, in particular the obligations of governments to respect, protect and fulfill these rights as far as possible.
