Global Network for the Right to Food and Nutrition

After two years of consultation, the Global Network for the Right to Food and Nutrition was publicly launched on 24 June 2013.

The launch of the network was a milestone in building joint action of public interest civil society organizations and social movements to act in concert for the realization of one of the most violated human rights worldwide - the human right to adequate food and nutrition.

The Network is an initiative of public interest civil society organizations and international social movements, including peasants, fisherfolk, pastoralists, indigenous peoples, and food and agricultural workers.

The Network opens a space for dialogue and mobilization of its members to hold States accountable for their obligation to realize the right to food and nutrition. It supports the struggles of social movements and groups that, as a result of standing up to violations of these rights, may suffer from repression, violence, and criminalization. Additionally the Network will work towards ending the impunity of state-condoned human rights violations and of non-state actors human rights abuses.
