The Right to Food

Let these right to food-related resources update you in February!

News - 29.01.2021

"Every individual and every organ of society … shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms." - Preamble to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948.


The right to food is a complex area. There are many dimensions interrelated, actors and processes involved, diversity of visions, subtle difference between concepts or emerging issues.

In order for every person to be able to fulfil the right to adequate food, or to advocate for its implementation, an understanding of certain issues and skills are needed.  

The materials available on this page are studies, platforms and other resources that have been recently published not only by FAO but also other entities. The selection of items has been made by the FAO Right to Food Team. 

Over 2021 FAO will be posting an update of these resources.

We hope you find them useful and enjoy this food for thought!
