At a time where technology is infiltrating every area of our lives, this year’s Right to Food and Nutrition Watch report takes a closer look at how this new era impacts food, our source of life, identity and social relations.

In 2008, the first issue of The Right to Food and Nutrition Watch was released and became the flagship publication of the Global Network for the Right to Food and Nutrition during the last ten years. The Watch Consortium as well as the Global Network for the Right to Food and Nutrition comprises around 30 civil society organisations and social movements.

This report, entitled Right to food and nutrition watch – when food becomes immaterial: confronting the digital age and published in September 2018, was launched at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Rome, Italy.

Over the past few decades, public goods, such as education and health – the pillars of human rights – have increasingly been taken over by private actors to make profit, the report says. Food, of course, has been traded for centuries, but the recent failure in market regulation has reduced it to a mere commodity.

According to the report, these events have deeply affected rural communities by taking away their productive resources, such as land, water and seeds.
