Food and Nutrition Security

The right to food is one of the most basic rights of humankind. However, hunger remains unacceptably widespread, while many systems of food production in use are simply unsustainable.

The Foundation believes addressing climate change and achieving sustainability in the global food system need to be recognised as dual imperatives. Our work in this area is guided by our Climate Justice Principle: Support the right to development.

The Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate Justice is a centre for thought leadership, education and advocacy on the struggle to secure global justice for those people vulnerable to the impacts of climate change who are usually forgotten - the poor, the disempowered and the marginalised across the world.

It is a platform for solidarity, partnership and shared engagement for all who care about global justice, whether as individuals and communities suffering injustice or as advocates for fairness in resource-rich societies.

The Foundation provides a space for facilitating action on climate justice to empower the poorest people and countries in their efforts to achieve sustainable and people-centred development.
