16794764565_634bb2e390_z

On April 2011, the Human Rights Council adopted a resolution reaffirming that ‘hunger constitutes an outrage and a violation of human dignity and therefore requires the adoption of urgent measures at the national, regional and international levels for its elimination’.

The HRC resolution manifests concern on the following issues: discrimination in the context of the right to food; ways and means to further advance the rights of people working rural areas; the relationship between severe malnutrition and childhood diseases; urban poor an their enjoyment of the rights to food; and rural women and their enjoyment of the right to food.
