The right to adequate food is the right of every woman, man and child to have sustainable access to food which is sufficient in quantity and in quality. It is a right denied to many. It can be avoided if States adopt a human rights-based approach to address the national and global food situation. Some States have done this, often with
the support and encouragement of international agencies and civil society organisations (CSOs). CSOs and communities can promote understanding of the right to adequate food. By monitoring and documenting access to food, they can call attention to violations of the right that occur when people in rural or urban areas are evicted from their farms, gardens, fishing areas or indigenous lands. In conjunction with the Main Book, this booklet aims to contribute to this work.
