FORDI invites to the fifth seminar out of a series of seminars on Good Practices on how to work with Rights Based Approach (RBA). This seminar is arranged in cooperation with DanChurchAid (DCA).
Approximately 815 million women and men are still denied access to a stable supply of the most basic calorie and nutrient requirements. 80% of the food insecure lives in rural areas in developing countries. Food insecurity is a matter of unequal distribution, rather than insufficient production, and consequently, solving the problem of food insecurity involves addressing the structural causes to unequal access to food, rather than solely promoting increased production per se. Two experienced individuals will discuss the dilemma of food insecurity and the Right to Food.
Harsh Mander, Social worker and writer from India, works with survivors of mass violence, hunger, homeless persons and street children. He is director at the Centre for Equity Studies and Special Commissioner to the Supreme Court of India on the Right to Food issues.
Steffen Erik Mey Rasmussen, Advisor at DCA in the office for Organisational Development & Right to Food, will present how DCA is implementing RBA in programmes and projects focusing on the Right to Food, including Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation.
DATE: Tuesday 19th of February 2013 from 15.00-17.00
PLACE: Folkekirkens Nødhjælp, Nørregade 15, 1165 Copenhagen
SIGN UP: Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday 18th of February 2013.
