Paper, 2006.

This paper gives practical guidance as to how to implement the right to food at the national level with examples of best practice from various countries. In so doing it will give many illustrations of a fundamental truth that must be grasped right from the outset: no government will make the right to food a reality unless it pursues with equal resolve the realization of other human rights with which the right to food is inseparably connected among them the universal rights to freedom of assembly and expression to safe drinking water to information education and the highest attainable standard of health.
