Right to Food Journal 2014 is launched

The 2014 edition of the Right to Food Journal highlights the advantages of working with the broadened concept of the human right to adequate food and nutrition.

For instance, civil society organizations and social movements have been working intensely in the last months to critically accompany the preparation process for the second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2) taking place in November 2014 in Rome 22 years after the first conference on the topic.

Civil society claims that ICN2, an inter-governmental meeting on nutrition jointly organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO), follows a fragmented conceptual approach to food security and nutrition, which hinders the holistic analysis of the root causes of all forms of malnutrition and leads to the elaboration of a set of policy proposals incoherent with the full realization of the right to food and nutrition.
