Legislative Database on the Right to Food

The Legislative Database on the Right to Food covers national legislation referred to and analysed in the Guide on Legislating for the Right to Food. It includes all constitutions, laws and subsidiary legislation which have been referred to in the Guide. Some links to the source websites included in the Companion CD to the Guide on Legislating for the Right to Food have been modified in the meantime, whereas the data in the legislative database refers to the work done for the Guide on Legislating for the Right to Food, which was published in 2009 as a part of the Right to Food Methodological Toolbox.
