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.

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.
