The Right to Food and Nutrition 2015 released

With malnutrition affecting more than 2 billion people and obesity rates rising, the Right to Food and Nutrition Watch 2015 underscores the artificial separation of nutrition and sustainable food systems, which is resulting in vertical, technical and product-based solutions that ignore human determinants. Pointing to the influence of corporations on policy-making processes, authors throughout the publication warn there exists a medicalization and commercialization of nutrition that is putting people’s sovereignty and rights at great risk.
