PDF File Size: 87 KB | Download   
Two of the United Nations’ leading agencies have welcomed an order from the Supreme Court of Nepal calling on the Government to supply food to 12 food-scarce districts in the Mid- and Far-Western regions. The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in Nepal and the World Food Programme (WFP) welcome the Court’s order of 25 September recognizing the “right to food sovereignty” in the Interim Constitution(article 18).

he enjoyment of the right to adequate food and freedom from hunger is of paramount importance for the enjoyment of all other rights, including the right to life, and it is crucial that national judicial organs regularly recognize this principle.
