Making the agri-food system work for the poor: The construction of food and nutrition security in Brazil

Thaís Leonardi Bassinello, Crispim Moreira

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In Brazil, the use of the terms food security and human right to food were first registered in offi cial documents in the mid-1980s. In 1985, the Ministry of Agriculture elaborated the document ‘Food Security: Proposal for a Policy to Fight Hunger’, with the focus on the socioeconomic aspects of food security. In the following year, the first National Food and Nutrition Conference 1 brought about the inclusion of a nutritional dimension to food security as well as establishing food as a right (CONSEA, 2009).
