People Centered Food Systems: Fostering & integrating human rights in food system policy & action

Lead PI: Jessica Fanzo
January 2019 - Ongoing
Project Type: Research

DESCRIPTION: The People-Centered Food Systems is a consortium of four organizations: Johns Hopkins University, the Alliance of Bioversity International and CIAT, the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR), and Rikolto.

The Consortium is building capacity and developing advocacy and accountability tools that better integrate human rights frameworks within food system policy and action to address constraints faced by rights holders.

The Consortium engages in Ethiopia, Honduras, Cambodia, and Uganda. Activities include country assessments, interactive consultations and engagements, training sessions, awareness-raising consultation workshops, and dissemination of country lessons to regional and global food system governance mechanisms. These activities are being developed in partnership with rights holders and duty bearers including governments, and local civil society organizations within each country.
