The Right to Food

Latin American Parliament (Parlatino)


The Latin American Parliament (Parlatino) is a regional, permanent and unicameral organism, consisting of the national parliaments of Latin America (Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Aruba, Curacao, St.Martin, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela).

The Parliament, among others, aims at promoting economic and social development of the Latin American community, the full economic, political, social and cultural development of their people and ensuring strict respect for human rights. The development and adoption of framework legislation represents one of the instruments for regional integration in different fields.

As part of the close collaboration with the project that supports the Hunger-Free Latin America and the Caribbean Initiative (IALCSH) and FAO Legal Office, the project has provided technical support for the preparation of the Framework Law on the Right to Food, Food Security and Sovereignty.
