Author: FAO Right to Food Team

Newsletter N°1 - October 2007.

The deprivation of the right to food, one of today’s most serious human rights violations, is often overlooked.
This newsletter aims to give a voice to the hungry and to all those who are involved in assisting their plight. It aims to strengthen governments in their efforts to make the right to food a reality for all. The first Right to Food Team Newsletter will focus on putting the right to food into practice.

in 2004:

1) Advocacy and training;
2) Information and assessment;
3) Legislation and accountability;
4) Strategy and coordination;
5) Benchmarks and monitoring.
