Stop Policies that Generate Hunger!.. Rome, Berlin, Heidelberg, Utrecht, October 8th, 2013.. – In a world that produces enough food for all, the annual report of the.. Right to Food and Nutrition Watch.. 2013, its sixth edition to be launched in Rome today, identifies a number of policies that generate hunger and malnutrition instead of reducing them.. In response, articles in the report set forth the claim that such policies and the actors who implement them, respect and incorporate the human right to adequate food when redesigning detrimental policies.. The report further insists upon the need for inclusive and meaningful participation of people and communities in the development of those public policies which affect their lives.. The.. presents national case studies and analysis that reveal:.. • policies that foster violence and discrimination against women with regard to equal access to natural resources, inheritances, equal wages and political decision-making, which both: limit women’s capacity to contribute fully to food and nutrition security; and, clearly produce the conditions that result  ...   nutrition must be scrutinized under the criterion of coherence with human rights.. The report stresses that a check of human rights coherence is particularly needed for global initiatives such as the G8 Alliance on Food Security in Africa, the Scaling-Up Nutrition initiative (SUN), the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) and other Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) in agriculture or nutrition.. All of these initiatives include significant involvement of corporations as well as the attendant conflicts of interest based on commercial considerations that become inevitably entwined in the making of public policy..

  • Title: Summary and Conclusion - right to food and nutrition watch
    Descriptive info: Alternatives and Resistance to Policies that Generate Hunger.. What are the key features of policies that generate and condone hunger? What are the essential elements of policies that contribute to overcome the causes of hunger? The.. 2013 aims to answer these questions from a diversity of thematic and geographic perspectives.. In this issue academics, social movement activists, policy advisors and human rights defenders have identified typologies of policies that do harm, and offer alternative, hunger-addressing approaches.. The most important conclusion that we can draw from these contributions is captured by reinterpretating a quote from Mahatma Gandhi: There is no way to human rights – human rights are the way.. The overarching goal of realizing all human rights for all, and in particular the right to food and nutrition, can only be achieved through strong, human-rights based accountability systems.. There is a clear need to articulate feasible and culturally acceptable alternatives to dominant policies in the areas of agriculture, food and nutrition.. These policy alternatives are rooted in people’s knowledge and their daily struggles to preserve their livelihoods.. In this publication the social movements emphasize food sovereignty as an alternative to policies that reproduce social exclusion, discrimination and generate hunger, particularly in rural communities.. Food sovereignty is based on human rights, the right to self-determination, the rights to land, territory and other natural resources.. The realization of these rights is promoted by alternative policies that rely on the agro-ecological approach and on rural-urban networks that support community agriculture and the vision of food and people’s sovereignty.. A call for people's participation is made in this year’s.. Proactive civil society participation is stressed as essential to the proposing of alternatives to dominant and destructive policies.. Rights holders - the people, their communities, their organizations and their social movements - are the most important actors when it comes to the design and implementation of policies that affect their livelihoods.. Their human right to participate in decision-making is as important in the realization of the right to food as their right to be protected against repression when they protest in public.. The indivisibility of human rights is demonstrated daily in this regard.. It is not possible to realize human rights without their application in processes of policy design, implementation and evaluation.. This perspective clashes with emerging global trends, however.. There is vast support for private investments in agriculture.. While it is acknowledged that there may be a legitimate role for private investment in agriculture, civil society actors are frequently excluded from the planning and implementation of projects.. This raises questions about the accountability of private actors with respect to the realization and protection of human rights, as well as their ability to deliver on the right to food and nutrition for the small producers they profess to assist.. More participatory models that engage small producers in identifying the kind of development they want and need is clearly a better way to ensure the right to food and nutrition for all.. This requirement is no greater than in the case of local artisanal fishermen and women adversely affected by the privatization of fishing grounds and the fencing of “protected areas” under the guise of environmental protection.. Fishery policies should be human-rights based and the development of future policies must include the meaningful participation of artisanal fishing communities.. Women especially suffer from the threats faced by fishing communities as they have limited means to move or adapt to new livelihoods.. The new fisheries agreement between the EU and Morocco is a striking example of the damage done when trade agreements rely on the exploitation of resources within an occupied territory.. The article on gender analyzes in depth the specific problems posed by a deficit in policies on non-discrimination and, more importantly, the inadequacy of monitoring, reporting, recourse and remedy mechanisms with respect to discrimination.. This failure contributes to routine structural violence against women in the form of sexual harassment and intimidation.. This is compounded by their lack of access to land ownership, finance and credit; meager opportunities to engage in activities to build capacity in the areas of nutrition and food production; and limited access to decent work according to ILO standards.. Policies that address discrimination and violence against women with respect to violations of their right to adequate food and nutrition include extensive education on human rights, access to affordable and accessible recourse and remedy mechanisms, anti-discrimination education programs for women and men, and a zero-tolerance approach to sexual  ...   investment in local agriculture to stimulate the rural economy - food aid has only insignificantly and temporarily benefited these communities.. In fact it has deepened the problem by sidetracking the attention of policy-makers, donor agencies and development workers from beneficial structural reforms of Nepal's rural economy.. While the unintended consequences of food aid are felt in poorer countries, populations in OECD countries are also affected by their own governments’ non-compliance with state obligations under international human rights law.. In the USA, for example, several sociopolitical barriers impede the realization of the right to food.. These include the lack of formal recognition of this right coupled with structural racism, failure to provide living wages and full employment for those able to work, and pervasive corporate influence at all levels government.. The progressive realization of the right to adequate food and nutrition in the USA can only be achieved by a shift from the current ineffective charity model to a rights-based approach.. The German case shows that the increasing number of food banks in affluent countries has paradoxically led to a series of human rights concerns.. Firstly, the increasing reliance on food banks is an indicator of growing poverty and food insecurity in a country – evidence that the right to food is not realized.. Secondly, poverty and subsequent dependency on food banks reinforces social exclusion and undermines the ability of people to live a dignified life.. The response to this development should be a human rights-based approach to disparity reduction rather than a narrow focus on poverty eradication.. In taking human rights obligations seriously, states should guarantee adequate levels of social security and reverse policies that promote the expansion of the low-wage labour market.. This has implications for public budgets as well as for tax justice and inequality, especially in countries that are hit by the economic crisis.. The impact of austerity measures in Europe on the national level is strongly illustrated in case of Spain.. In this country violations of the right to an adequate standard of living, and particularly the right to housing, have generated unprecedented social mobilization of those affected, as demonstrated by the.. Plataforma de Afectados por la Hipoteca.. When forced to leave their homes people suffer directly from the consequences of social exclusion and lose the conditions that enable them to realize other human rights such as the right to adequate food.. In addition, the criminalization of the movement in the context of strong media pressure is deeply disturbing.. The 2013 adopted amendments to the legislation, while acknowledged, offer an inadequate response to the ongoing social mobilization.. Nevertheless it is remarkable and promising to see how collective empowerment and the capacity to develop joint proposals based on social self-organization can constitute such a monumental step forward in the struggle for economic, social and cultural rights in Spain.. In this context, what can be expected in the post-2015 era?.. Non-negotiable cornerstones of a new development model must include the reaffirmation of the primacy of human rights and its practical implementation; clear lines of human rights accountability; and firm targets for disparity reductions worldwide.. Without the full operational inclusion of these principles, any post-2015 agenda will replicate the shortcomings of the MDGs.. Civil society organizations should be careful not to participate in and accept processes that do not meet these fundamental standards.. The formulation of any new global goals must include clear steps and indicators for the progressive universal realization of the right to adequate food and nutrition.. This should be accompanied by the commitment to implement effective measures to end the impunity of those who violate this human right.. The UN Special Rapporteur‘s call for a stand-alone equality-goal in the post-2015 development agenda is essential as economic inequality and gender forms of discrimination are a threat to the realization of most human rights including the right to food and nutrition.. is directly relevant to the post-2015 debates in its thematic and geographic focus.. Its central message is that all human rights, and particularly the right to food and nutrition, cannot be achieved without engaging the most affected rights-holders in the shaping of effective policies against hunger.. Substantial progress cannot be made without using human rights as the key methodology to strengthen accountability systems and articulate alternatives to dominant policies in the food, agriculture and nutrition sectors.. These alternatives are based on the daily struggles of the people.. There is no way to human rights – human rights are the way.. Zusammenfassung..

PRESS RELEASE.. Chronic Hunger: Consequence of Impunity of Right to Food Violations.. Geneva/Stuttgart/Utrecht, October 11, 2011.. - Despite the growth of a worldwide Right to Food movement and the existence of international frameworks and mechanisms to protect human rights, an unacceptable number of violations remain unpunished, according to the Right to Food and Nutrition Watch 2011, an annual publication released today that monitors food security and nutrition policies from a human rights perspective.. The publication identifies a lack of accountability as the “missing link” between people’s struggle for their rights and the increased recognition of the right to food in political agendas that has occurred over the past 25 years.. According to UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier De Schutter, “By empowering courts or other independent bodies to monitor compliance with the human right to adequate food, we transform fundamentally the relationship between the poor and the marginalized, and those -- whether they are State bodies or private actors -- who make decisions that can affect them.. There were needs to be fulfilled: there are now rights that must be respected.. The relationship was one of charity: it has become one of  ...   January 2010 and October 2011, 40 peasants' murders were registered as a result of the agrarian conflict in the region.. The crimes committed have not been investigated and remain in impunity.. Other rights’ violations identified by the Watch this year include the ongoing harassment and murder of peasant farmers and human rights defenders in Togo; the illegal granting of land concessions to the palm oil industry by the government of Malaysia at the expense of its indigenous communities; and the lack of improvement in the status of women and girls in relation to the right to food, despite their vital role in establishing food security.. The Right to Food and Nutrition Watch 2011 denounces the flagrant lack of accountability of both government and private actors that gives rise to daily violations of the right to food.. This publication is a fundamental tool to give voice to the victims and to draw public attention to situations of intolerable injustice, Jean Ziegler, Vice-President of the United Nations Human Rights Council’s Advisory Committee.. Progress in the recognition of rights related to food, including the increasing use of national judicial systems as channels for claiming rights and seeking remedy, is acknowledged by the Watch’s contributing authors, who include medical experts, government representatives, NGO workers and social movement members.. However, human rights violations, and a marked failure to remedy their consequences, remains the norm, even in cases where rights are enshrined in constitutional law, as in Bolivia and Ecuador.. Those deprived of the right to adequate food remain in a state of dire poverty and hunger while violations are repeated by offenders, with impunity.. Additionnal documents..

    Descriptive info: The Right to Food and Nutrition 2010.. The Right to Food and Nutrition Watch 2010.. LAND GRABBING AND NUTRITION: CHALLENGES FOR GLOBAL GOVERNANCE.. FEEDBACK ON THE WATCH 2010.. In a world that seems to be thrown from one crisis to another, the ability to hold powerful actors accountable - whether at national or global level - is increasingly challenging.. Our collective crises can only be overcome by strengthening movements for mutual solidarity.. An important element of solidarity is to bring the stories of communities whose rights are abused to the world, and to create platforms for developing alternative visions.. is an important contribution in this sense..

The reformed Committee on World Food Security, being the platform for international and intergovernmental debates on food security and nutrition issues, is all the more richer as views from more stakeholders are presented..

It also helps us understand the challenges associated with trying to reach those who are unable to realize their rights.. The case studies that the report explores provide powerful reasons why we must continue in our efforts to ensure that policies and actions are built around the Right to Food, ensuring a comprehensive approach to food security that focuses on availability, access, utilization and stability, in ways that are responsive to the immediate needs of vulnerable populations and, at the same time, contribute to longer term resilience.. Such analyses are not easy to undertake and I commend those who are putting together the.. for their efforts to ensure the rigour and reliability..

I am particularly pleased that the authors have looked with care at the challenges faced by societies, and particularly by women, as they seek to ensure optimal nutritional status for all.. I am also pleased that they have looked hard at one of the principal determinants of inability to enjoy the right to food – lack of predictable and transferable land tenure..
