UGANDA / Integrating Food and Nutrition Security and the Right to Food in Local Government Development Planning and Budgeting

Reference Guide, 2013.
This reference guide is addressed to technical officers at district and sub-county level in Uganda who are involved in preparing Higher and Lower Local Government Development Plans which as mandated must address food and nutrition security as a cross-cutting concern. The guide responds to the capacity needs of the officers who may lack the necessary tools to prepare well-articulated and justified food and nutrition security plans. It also gives direction on how to meaningfully apply human rights, with specific reference to the right to food, principles at sub-national level. Available in English.
