Right to Food Handbooks 3, 2013.

This handbook presents the process to be followed for the revision of sectoral legislation, since it may affect various aspects of the right to food. The purpose of this revision is to ensure that the legal framework of the country is favourable for the progressive realization of the right to food.

The content of this handbook is based on the FAO's “Guide on Legislating for the Right to Food”. It provides an explanation of the process to be followed for reviewing the compatibility of sectoral laws with the right to food as well as some guidelines and methodological tools for its realization. Furthermore, there are some examples of sectoral provisions that may affect the right to food in very important areas, such as land, water, fishing, etc.
