Olivier De Schutter, Special Rapporteur on the right to food - Press Conference
25 Oct 2013 -  Mr. Olivier De Schutter, Special Rapporteur on the right to food.
On the basis of eleven country missions, submissions from a range of States from all regions, and regional right to food consultations in Latin America and the Caribbean (2011), Eastern and Southern Africa (2012) and West Africa (2013), this report identifies where and how progress has been made in implementing the right to food, and outlines further steps that must be taken towards the full and effective realization of this right.
The report emphasizes the interlocking contributions of states, civil society, courts, human rights institutions and parliamentarians to create an apparatus with the necessary participation and accountability to make progress, and heralds the emergence of a global right to food movement.
