GUIDE ON LEGISLATION FOR THE RIGHT TO FOOD

The Guide on Legislation fot the Right to Food, launched by FAO in 2009 provides detailed guidance to legislative drafters and reviewers on legislative provisions and institutional coordination. While the present Guide addresses primarily States Parties to the Covenant, it provides equally valid guidance to non-Parties seeking to implement this fundamental human right. Following a brief explanation f the right to food in international law, the Guide discusses three main levels of legislative incorporation of this human right at the national level, i.e. constitutional recognition, framework law on the right to food and a compatibility review of relevant national legislation.
