New report on the state of the right to food and nutrition in the world

The Global Network on the Right to Food and Nutrition, of which Sustain is a member, have just released a report on the global state of the right to food and nutrition.

This pilot-report aims to move beyond numbers, and provide an insight into how the right to food and nutrition has advanced and evolved over the past year.

Whilst shifting the narrative to include the voice of people is complex, the report seeks to share several experiences from the North and South, where communities and CSOs have successfully organized against regressive state’s actions and advanced various policies to uphold their right to food and nutrition.

This years report make an emphasis on the impact of regressive policies on the women’s right to food and nutrition,

Sustain contributed to this report and in particular its section on the UK alongside colleagues from Nourish Scotland and the Independent Food Aid Network.

You can find the full report online as well as the executive summary.
