Achieving the Right to Food: From Global Governance to National Implementation

In this address to the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) UN Special Rapporteur Olivier de Schutter highlights the innovative approaches that countries from Latin American and Africa have adopted in order to integrate the universal right to food in national food security policies. De Schutter suggests several ways that the CFS could support these initiatives, including yearly reviews of the implementation of adopted guidelines by member states. The late October meetings were the first time the CFS met since it was reformed in November 2009.
