Right to Nutritional Food and Drink is Foundational Human Right

 

 

|| This piece was posted in The Humanion Political Economics Section on 310117  || ά. This piece of news is interesting because it raises the question: is it a Human Right for Human Beings to have access to suitable and nutritious food and drink that meet a human's physiological needs? Mr Arif Husain, Chief Economist of World Food Programme:WFP says, ''It is a reminder that access to affordable, nutritious food should be a right for all.” Yes, it is his opinion that it should be but is it? Is it a right, a Haman Right? What use these other things are, that are viewed and at least, in theory and principles of declarations and laws taken as human rights, if one is dead because of hunger? If one cannot feed oneself with suitable and nutritious food and drink one is going to die. So where are we going to put this mockery-knife that cuts like a spherical knife that mocks the very 'right to life' when one cannot feed oneself and comes to succumb to death where is her:his 'right to life'? Where is their right to life, the babies and children, who perish every day because of this killer? Right to life means that one's life must not be taken away. But this lack of access to suitable and nutritious food and drink eventually kills one and takes one's life away.

Whose job, whose function, whose work is this to ensure that this 'killer' of hunger, malnutrition and severe and acute malnutrition does not kill people? Apparently, no one's because it is not even in the human rights that says clearly and without any ambiguity that it is all human's human right to have access to suitable and nutritious food and drink. People, business people are gathering around hotels and guesthouses in Davos, Switzerland and they would be speaking of lofty and huge things about business and commerce and investment and downturn and slow down and negative conditions, headwinds, fiscal stimulus, budgetary policy measures, fluctuations, growth and trends and micro and macro economic interactions, adjustment and packages of measures of scope and orientation, inflationary or deflationary pressures and customer confidence and flow of capital and profit margins, market conditions as well as sustainable development and the ever so drummed up SDGs and they would even quote some of these SDGs, even with their numbers. The Humanion would like to put to them this question: is it a human right, a human's right to suitable and nutritious food and drink so that one is able to biologically sustain existence so that one can seek to be a human?

And if it is a human right why is it not part of our Political Economics and our Political Philosophy and our Jurisprudence? Why does it not form part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights? Why is it not part of our business and commitment to eradicate hunger? Malnutrition? And other question is this, though, there are many people in this world, who are going on about civilisation, Eastern and Western and Muslim and Christian and African and Jewish and this and that civilisation in order to create pseudo arguments to advance phobia and division, what is civilisation when we, this humanity spread about all over the globe, are absolutely, desperately and despicably failing to ensure all humans have access to the absolute first 'h' of 'human rights', that is, access to suitable and nutritious food and drink for without that there exists no human? What is this civilisation that we are running where humans die of hunger, of malnutrition and severe and acute malnutrition, if we forget about all other ills? Or rather, how could we call this a civilisation when we let and do nothing and accept it that people will die of hunger, of malnutrition and severe and acute malnutrition? And children, babies and people with disabilities in most part of the world are dying of this hunger, of malnutrition and of severe and acute malnutrition?

And here is the news piece: a simple bowl of food in Malawi is much more expensive than that same meal in Davos, Switzerland, once adjustments have been made to take into account one’s average daily income, research by the United Nations World Food Programme has revealed. The analysis is part of a new initiative by the WFP, called ‘Hot Dinner Data,’ which is being made public today, just before the January 17 opening of the annual World Economic Forum, a summit of political and economic leaders that takes place in Davos.

“The Hot Dinner Data analysis aims to hold a new mirror up to the world – one which illustrates the distortions in the purchasing power of the rich and the poor as they try to meet their basic food needs.” announced Arif Husain, Chief Economist of WFP. Hot Dinner Data reveals that people in the developing world pay as much as 100 times more for a basic plate of food than those who live in wealthier nations. In the most extreme circumstances, for example, in regions under conflict, the cost can be 300 times higher.

For example, a bowl of bean stew, a standard nutritious meal throughout regions and cultures, would cost a person in Switzerland 0.88 Swiss Francs, or an average 0.41 per cent of their daily income. That cost would be 100 times more in Malawi, where a person would need to spend 41 per cent of their daily income to purchase the same meal. In India and Nicaragua, it would be roughly 10 to 15 times more expensive than in Switzerland.

A more extreme case exists in Syria, where in the besieged town of Deir ez-Zor, a bean stew costs far beyond a person’s daily income for an equivalent of CHF 271.40, more than a 300 per cent increase. The high cost of food in poorer nations tends to be driven by losses created by deficient storage, transportation, and distribution systems; excessive reliance on only a few staple crops; lack of market access for local farmers; a lack of preparedness to respond to changing climates; and conflicts that are frequently themselves intensified by a lack of resources.

To address these challenges, WFP advocates crop diversification, waste reduction, and more efficient supply chains, among other strategies aimed to make food affordable for everyone. WFP is working with partners from the local to global levels to achieve the Zero Hunger goal of the Sustainable Development Agenda and will continue to expand the reach of Hot Dinner Data::: ω.
