Water and Food Security

Abstract from the document:

In this report, two fundamental lenses are used to examine the issue of water and FSN. The first is the human rights framework, particularly the rights to food and water, and how these two rights intersect and support each other. In particular, we are interested in exploring whether the right to water can be expanded to encompass uses of water that are directed towards the realization of the right to food. The second is a lens that looks at the possibility of reframing the challenge in order to reframe the solution – looking at issues of redistribution and equity, reduction of waste, and changes in agricultural and dietary practices in order to ensure water for FSN.
