Route to Food

Food is a Human Right. In Kenya, millions routinely face the threat of chronic hunger and food insecurity. Behind the indignity and inhumanity of starvation is a plethora of structural and technical challenges that exacerbate the problem of food insecurity. These include climate change, pollution, seed quality, land policies, poor infrastructure and management, the corporatization of food and lack of goodwill in the implementation of government policy. The Food Series is a collaboration between The Elephant and the Route To Food Initiative (RTFI), exploring the complexity of the food question in Kenya and Africa. The series brings together a combination of voices and views, addressing the multiplicity of concerns behind the notion of food insecurity and the threat it poses as a violation of a basic human right for millions of citizens in Africa.
