Chapter Summary

Monitoring the realisation of economic and social rights has long been seen in terms of identifying suitable indicators, which could then be reported on by governments to national human rights institutions, and more often to international treaty monitoring bodies. This chapter explores these developments and explains the current thinking about the practical aspects of monitoring the realisation of the right to adequate food at country level. The Right to Food Guidelines address a range of activities and issues that States consider in the implementation of the human right to adequate food and contain three sections. The renewed commitments to the realisation of the human right to food, as witnessed by the adoption of the Right to Food Guidelines, the Millennium Declaration and other documents, present opportunities to address the root causes of powerlessness, exclusion and exploitation. This will greatly facilitate mainstreaming rights-based monitoring of the human right to adequate food.

Keywords: country level; right to adequate food; right to food guidelines; rights-based approach
