Aquino III should declare right to adequate food a national policy in order to leave a legacy that is beneficial to the present and future generations, the National Food Coalition (NFC) said in a news release.

In an event dubbed “National Conference on the Right to Adequate Food: A Collective Action for Policy Reform,” Aurea Miclat-Teves, NFC convenor, said there is a need for the government to come up with an enabling law that will rectify existing incoherent, non-complementary and conflicting legal mechanisms.

The conference was attended and participated in by more than 100 human rights defenders, rural development advocates, pro-environment groups, indigenous peoples, people’s and non-governmental organizations from various parts of the country and representatives of different national government agencies last February 27 to 28.
