Abstract

This review introduces the tenth anniversary issue of the Right to Food and Nutrition Watch, titled “The World Food Crisis: The Way Out” (which can be downloaded here in English, Spanish, French and Portuguese) It presents an alternative civil society perspective on the development of better food policy and better governance at local, national, regional and global levels. This year’s peer-reviewed Watch takes stock of the decade since the 2007/2008 major world food crisis and examines challenges and opportunities that can be anticipated in the near future. It features ten thematic essays on pivotal issues and developments around the human right to adequate food and nutrition such as trade rules, climate change and emergencies, complemented by supportive national and regional reports from all regions of the world --from Haiti to Somaliland, Yemen and France to Nepal. Authors and contributors include academics, public interest civil society, peasant organizations and indigenous peoples’ leaders.
