The right to food in practice: implementation at the national level

Adequate food is a human right. This is something that has been formally recognised by the majority of states, but very little has been done to put this recognition into practice. This paper gives practical guidance on how to implement the right to food at the national level. It argues that no government will make the right to food a reality unless it strives to realise, with equal resolve, other human rights with which the right to food is inseparably connected.
