The Right to Adequate Food – Fact Sheet


The UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and the UN Food and Agriculture Organization jointly developed a fact sheet to explain the right to food. It provides an overview of national, regional and international accountability and monitoring with respect to food as a human right. The publication outlines the link between human rights, the promotion of food security and achieving the Millennium Development Goals. MDG Goal 1 is to reduce hunger by half by 2015.
