Kehinde Omotoso, Edidiong Samuel Akpabio

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


The right to adequate, quality, and nutritious food is recognized globally as fundamental. This right is deeply rooted in various international human rights’ agreements (United Nations 1948, 1966, 1989, 2006, 2000, 2015). Several countries have committed to realizing this right by ensuring food security at different levels of society. However, food insecurity remains pervasive and disproportionately distributed across the world’s regions, with higher magnitudes in developing regions.
