The transformative potential of the right to food

A new (and final) report from Oliver de Schutter, the Special Rapporteur on the right to food, submitted to the Human Rights Council, draws the conclusions from his mandate, showing the connections between his various contributions.

significant progress has been achieved in boosting agricultural production over the past
fifty years.
