| English||The definition of food security now most commonly used, that of the 1996
World Food Summit, bears considerable resemblance to the definition of the right to food.
Yet a right-to-food based approach to food security is distinct from other approaches to
reducing hunger and malnutrition and complements food security considerations with
dignity, rights acknowledgment, transparency, accountability, and empowerment concerns. Realizing the right to food should, furthermore, be part and parcel of rightsbased
approaches to development that aim to implement all human rights obligations which
States have committed themselves to under human rights law.|
