15 October / CFS 46- Launch publication -Fifteen years implementing the Right to Food Guidelines

Events - 27.09.2019

This year, the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) celebrates ten years since its reform in 2009 and 45 years since its founding in 1974. But 2019 also marks the 15 years of implementing the Right to Food Guidelines, adopted by the FAO Council. On occasion of these anniversaries, FAO, through the support of the Government of Spain, has prepared a publication which brings lessons and good practices that have taken place all over the world in the last decade and a half towards the realization of the right to adequate food. The review recalls that, rather than marking an end point, the adoption of the Right to Food Guidelines has proved to be a moment of transition and evolution, embodying the commitment that existed at that time. Indeed, it has spearheaded the adoption and endorsement of a number of international tools and instruments. Additionally, the publication identifies a number of well-known global challenges which, unless addressed through a human rights-based approach, will be difficult to overcome. Finally, it shows how the Right to Food Guidelines have an important role to play in accelerating progress to achieve the 2030 Agenda.
