We the concerned Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) working to promote the Right to Adequate Food, Right to Health, Trade justice, Agriculture, Environmental Justice, Farmers’ Rights and human rights related issues are concerned by Government’s continued failure
and omission to ban the use of hazardous agro-chemicals such Glyphosate Based Herbicides (GBHs) which threaten and are in violation of the right to life, health, right to
adequate food and to a clean and healthy environment guaranteed under Objectives XX, XXII, Articles 20, 45, 8A and 33 of the Constitution of the Republic of Uganda, 1995.
CEFROHT has made strides in promoting the intersectionality of food justice, climate and economic justice especially using Agroecology and a human rights-based approach. We have continued the use of legal tools to promote adequate living for the vulnerable people.
We deeply understand that unequal power relations and social exclusion deny people their human rights and keeps them in poverty. Therefore, our approaches continued to empower rights-holders to claim their rights, and support duty-bearers to meet their legal obligations.
This policy brief urges that agroecology will be a far to reach approach if small holder
farmers’ communal and individual property rights are not protected; if there is no fair and equitable contract enforcement; failed creation and enforcement of equitable labor laws and failure of the access to opportunity for all (women, poor, uneducated, marginalized).
Insufficient physical activity has been identified as one of the leading risk factors for non-communicable diseases
(NCD) and death worldwide. Physical activity is defined as any bodily movement procured by skeletal muscles that requires energy expenditure. According to WHO, every 1 in 4 adults do not meet the global recommended levels of
physical activity and up to 5 million global deaths a year could be averted if the population was more active.
The Centre for Food and Adequate Living Rights (CEFROHT), has developed this policy brief to inform country stakeholders (government, civil society, academia, and others) on the legal basis for adoption of nutrition labelling as a policy tool to promote healthy diets and prevent NCDs in Uganda.
The guide contains information and activities on human rights focusing on what human rights are, how one can protect their human rights, where to go in case ones’ human rights are violated, and the Human Rights (Enforcement) Act 2019. This information is presented in a format suited for direct training of CAGs and LCs.
The human right to adequate food is reflected in several international instruments. These include the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR);1 the 1966 International Covenant on
Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR); the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women;3 and the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC).
