Authors: Christophe Golay and Michaela Büschi

Right to Food Study, 2012.

This study, developed jointly with the Geneva academy of humanitarian law and human rights, aims to provide guidance on how the right to adequate food can best be integrated into the two frameworks ”The Global Strategic Framework for Food Security and Nutrition (GSF)” and “the UN Comprehensive Framework for Action (CFA)”.

Formed as both an analytical and practical tool, the study divided into four main sections: the evolution of the right to adequate food and the rights-based approach to the fight against hunger; an introduction to the CFA/UCFA as well as the GSF; possible ways to introduce the right to adequate food into the CFA/UCFA; and recommendations for the integration of the right to adequate food into the GSF.

In the final part of the study, two sets of recommendations are presented for the GSF. As for the first set of recommendations, it aims to present possible ways to improve future versions of the framework. As for the second set of recommendations, it aims to integrate the right to adequate food in the implementation of the GSF notably by arguing that it should largely promote a right to food-based approach as well as the following of the PANTHER human rights principles in the elaboration and implementation of food security policies and programmes; it should encourage awareness raising campaigns, the empowerment of people to claim their right to adequate food and the promotion of gender-equality.
