The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 first recognized the right to food as a human right. It was then incorporated in the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (Article 11) adopted in 1966 and ratified by 156 states, which are today legally bound by its provisions. The expert interpretation and more refined definition of this right are contained in General Comment 12 of the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1999). The Voluntary Guidelines to Support the Progressive Realization of the Right to Adequate Food in the Context of National Food Security – the Right to Food Guidelines – were adopted by the FAO Council in 2004 and provide practical recommendations on concrete steps for the implementation of the right to food.

Like other farmers from Rwanguondu village, Kivuti trusted the traditional methods of weather prediction, which had been used by his forefathers for ages.

"Since I was a small boy, I knew that it was going to rain heavily on March 25, every year. This meant that all farms had to be prepared with everything necessary by March 23, in readiness for planting on March 26," said Kivuti. read more

Food Security: women perspective.
Women are too often marginalised in their own families and their communities and has lesser access to and control of the resources than men. Hence, the women who comprises about 40% of the world's agricultural labour, are the first and the hardest hit by the Food Insecurity. In the patriarchal Nepali society, the scenario is even worse. The imbalance between what women do and what they have is more due to the male dominance in the society. Senior Program Officer of Swiss Government Development Corporation, Ms. Yamuna Ghale talks with Radio Sagarmatha regarding the status of Nepali women in the context of Food Security. Consumer Right Activist Mr. Jyoti Baniya joins in to shed light on what could be done to improve the situation for Nepali women.
