Chapter Summary

This chapter identifies specific relevant measures within public policies which are important in order to enable everyone to exercise the right to food. It analyzes the content of Article 11 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights. The chapter examines the relationship between improved food production and food distribution, as well as the environmental context in which the right to food must be understood. It also analyzes the international measures for increasing food production. A particular emphasis is placed on the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), as the most important United Nations (UN) specialized agency for realization of the right to food, in particular its relationship to the Future Harvest Centers of the Consultative Group on International Agricultural Research (CGIAR).
