- 2012 GHI Summary
“An alternative vision is possible, of inclusive and sustainable growth that provides livelihoods for all, preserves the environment and is sustainable over time.” –European Report on Development, 2012.
- The Concept of GHI
High levels of hunger are generally found in those countries and regions where access and property rights to land, water and energy are limited or contested.
- Global, Regional and National Trend
The need to produce more with less – and to do so more sustainably and in a manner that prioritizes the poor – will remain.
- Sustainablile Food Security Under Land, Water and Energy Stresses“The tight interconnections between water, energy and land make clear that the management of each of them cannot be considered in isolation, but must be seen as part of an integrated system.” – European Report on Development, 2012
- The Centrality of Land, Water and Energy for Smallholders
“Equitable access to land and natural resources is an essential element of the right to food for rural populations in general and for vulnerable and marginalized groups in particular.” – FAO Right to Food, 2008.
- Policy Recommended
“States can and must achieve a reorientation of their agricultural systems towards modes of production that contribute to the progressive realization of the human right to adequate food.” – Olivier De Schutter, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food.
