Responsible governance of agricultural investments: a right to food perspective

Author: Daniel Gomez

Information Brief, 2014.

In light of the endorsement of the Voluntary Guidelines on the Responsible Governance of Tenure of Land, Fisheries and Forests in the Context of National Food Security (VGGT), this Information Brief aims to provide concise and practical elements for a responsible governance of agricultural investments. Developed jointly with the FAO study The Right to Food and the Responsible Governance of Tenure: A dialogue towards implementation, this Information Brief offers a right to food perspective on a crucial governance matter for the implementation of the VGGT. Besides underlining the importance of some VGGT provisions for the realization of the right to food, Responsible Governance of Agricultural Investments: A Right to Food Perspective considers the benefits of a human rights impact assessment to agricultural investments and analyzes alternative investment models to the large-scale land acquisition.
