Speaker’s Notes: The perspective of the right to adequate food focuses on several human rights principles: Human dignity . This principle calls for all people to be treated with respect, and honoured and esteemed as a human beings. A rights-based approach to development recognizes the individual not as a mere object of a policy. Rather it acknowledges the human being as a holder of a human right and one who can claim these rights. Accountability . A rights-based approach acknowledges that the state has international legal obligations for establishing transparent goals and processes for development and poverty reduction. States are accountable for their action to individuals and should be answerable. Empowerment . The individuals, in turn, need to have the power and capacity to seek from the state remedial actions and compensation for violation of their Human Rights. The power to become a claimant recognized by the state is also a recognition of the dignity of this person. Non-discrimination . The right to adequate food must be guaranteed without discrimination as to national or social origin, property, race, gender, language, religion, political or other opinions. This explains the priority focus on vulnerable groups, as well as the strong emphasis on women. Participation . This principle underlines the need for people to determine their own well-being and participate in the planning, design, monitoring and evaluation of programmes for their development and the reduction of their poverty. In addition, people should be able to participate on macro policy issues. Full participation requires transparency. It empowers people and is another form of recognition of their dignity.
