Open Full Event Side Event: A right to food and nutrition



Building on debates going back decades but given fresh impetus by controversies around the 2021 Food Systems Summit, a key focus of the ANH Academy this year is the role of human rights in securing equitable food systems. Complementing a focus on a right to food throughout the Academy Week, this side event will present state-of-the-art human rights research past and future, and facilitate discussion around what this means in practice for researchers, implementers, policymakers and citizens in low- middle- and high-income countries. The aim is to illustrate how the concept of human rights may be applied to issues relevant to ANH, and explore interest in generating a theme of work on rights in the Academy.
