The Human Right to Food and Just Transition in Agriculture: Global Perspectives

The increasing urgency of the climate crisis is creating new opportunities for structural reforms to farm, trade, food and energy policies. It is critical to ensure that justice and equity are at the center of these reforms.

The Human Right to Food and Just Transition are global frameworks that offer complimentary approaches to systemic reform of our food, agriculture, and energy systems. These frameworks also protect the rights of food producers, consumers and rural and urban communities.

Join us to delve deeper into the challenges and opportunities for civil society organizations in 2020 and beyond. Refreshments will be offered.
