Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights about an opportunity involving the Special Rapporteur on the right to food. Special Rapporteurs are independent experts appointed by the Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a specific human rights theme. The Special Rapporteur  on the right to food will be focusing her next report to the UN General Assembly on the topic of nutrition, and is holding a consultation to gather information and ideas with relevant partners, to inform the report.

This is a great opportunity to push the NCD agenda forward in the new Decasmart commitmentsde of Action on Nutrition based on a human rights approach. Submit written comments by JULY 10 (see concept note) – we welcome and encourage national and regional NCD Alliances to respond and share their national/regional experiences.

Please send your responses to Frederike Jansonius and
please send a copy the NCD Alliance.
