Amnesty International Nepal submitted Amnesty International’s analysis of Nepal’s new law on the right to food and food sovereignty to the Agriculture and Livestock Development Minister Chakra Pani Khanal on April 19.
Amnesty International emphasises that Nepal must strengthen and implement its new law on the right to food in order to meet its commitments to rid the country of hunger, malnutrition and food insecurity.
A delegation consisting of Amnesty Internationl Nepal’s Board Chair Bikram Dhukuchhu and representatives from Community Self Rlinace Center (CSRC) and JuRI Nepal submitted the analysis paper to Minister Khanal at the latter’s office in Singha Durbar.
Amnesty International’s briefing Analysis of the Right to Food and Food Sovereignty Act recommends for the law to be amended. It suggests that rules and regulations necessary to implement the provisions of the law need to be crafted sooner.
The briefing was made public on April 4 at a programme with representatives from Nepal’s civil society, National Human Rights Commission and media
