As the UN food systems summit takes place on Thursday, governments can do much more, writes Michael Fakhri, UN special rapporteur on the right to food
The role of the UN’s dozens of independent experts, or special rapporteurs, is to report and advise on various human rights. My role revolves around the right to food – which is under enormous threat.
The world’s food systems have been failing people for a long time. The climate crisis is ravaging the planet, biodiversity diminishes every day and food insecurity is on the rise.
