CSM Plenary statement at the Global Thematic Event to monitor the Right to Food Guidelines:

18 October 2018

Billy Mayaya – Right to Food Network (Malawi)

CSM Working Group on Monitoring 

While there are many different laws, policies, strategies, and constitutional provisions that support the Right to Food at national level- our assessment has revealed that there remains fragmentation across sectors, as well as a gap between frameworks and implementation. And within those gaps falls many different kinds of violations which were already mentioned in the panel presentation, including  the increasing rates of criminalization of human rights defenders- an important issue that we also raised in the 2016 monitoring exercise of the Tenure Guidelines, and unfortunately has not yet changed.

I would like to thank the Open Ended Working Group (OEWG) and the task teams for the process so far, and for the work carried out to achieve these Terms of Reference.It is worth noting that the process that lies ahead is extremely important, especially in the current context of hunger and malnutrition. This process can show us the path to follow in order to fulfil the CFS mandate. It is the responsibility of the CFS to achieve food security, and to enable access for everyone to healthy food that reflects justice for both people and planet earth.

Nasmin Choudhury  (India)

I come from India and witness to ravaging impacts of forced migration. Our villages are empty of young boys and youth. Schools have only girls as boys are forced to migrate to cities, and even further to the Gulf countries to chase their dream of overcoming poverty. Continue Reading!

18 October 2018

Thierry Kesteloot, Oxfam Solidarité (Belgium)

Coordinator of the CSM Working Group on Global Food Food Governance

The translation of the HLPE reports is a minimal requirement to ensure an inclusive discussion. Unfortunately this is not the first time that we cannot discuss the valuable contributions of the HLPE in the CFS because of a lack of financial commitment. This makes it also impossible to have a fully inclusive analysis by the CSM. Continue reading!
