Dear Friends,

Right to Food Campaign India is organising 5th National Convention on National Food Security Act (NFSA) and Beyond: Right to Food, Democracy and Social Justice from 1st to 3rd March 2014 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. A number of important civil society groups and progressive movements are expected to actively take part in this convention. Therefore, this is a unique opportunity for SAAPE to integrate itself with others about SAAPE’s common concerns. Therefore, as per the Core Committee members’ discussion and suggestion, we have decided to take part in this important convention. Mr. Sushovan Dhar (SAAPE Core Committee member), Dr. Keshav Khadka (All Nepal Peasants’ Federation- ANPFa representing SAAPE Food Sovereignty Campaign Group) and secretariat staff will participate in public meetings and workshops of the convention. 

Similarly, fourth SAAPE Poverty and Vulnerability Report 2013 ‘Crises, Vulnerability and Poverty in South Asia : People’s Struggles for Justice and Dignity’ will be launched during the convention on 3rd March.
