Food insecurity is still a problem in most parts of Cameroon despite the huge food production potential in the country. There are disparities between the northern region and southern segment of the country. In the southern region, the problem of food insecurity is not as bad as in the northern region but three million people almost 15% of the population of Cameroon have insufficient food both in quantity and in quality. Consequently, there is need to raise awareness on the problem and engage policy makers in the framing and implementation of appropriate policies to reduce the scale of the problem. Recognition of right to food as a human right can be an important tool to raise awareness so that access to food is not treated as a favour but a right. One way to do this is supporting family agriculture
RELUFA will present a document on the situation of the right to food in Cameroon based on a research its staff has conducted. The document will be used as an advocacy document and presented to the public and relevant stakeholders in a publicly organized event so that perceptions can be influenced. Since the document intends to highlight the scale of the problem of the right to food in Cameroon, the aim will be to instigate an alternative approach so that access to food by all the citizens should be a priority to government so that maximum available resources are used to satisfy their needs and support family agriculture
RELUFA has promoted community grain banks in various villages in the extreme north region of Cameroon. Since these are direct interventions in the villages for the benefit of the local communities, there has not been sufficient focus on conducting a study that can be used as a reference document to show the scale of the problem so that appropriate steps are taken to address the problem. This event will complement the work RELUFA has been doing on the field in promoting community grain banks to fight against hunger.

|9/25/2014 12:00:29||15th October 2014-||October 15 being celebrated as international day of Rural women is an excellent opportunity to highlight the women’s role in agriculture, culture and cuisine. On this day food festivals are organized which includes display of different foods from varied sources, seeds of peace because these local traditional seed varieties bring in peace and harmony in the farming community by sharing and exchanging the tangible seed along with treasured knowledge around that crop. Live demonstration of traditional recipes from various parts of South India sharpens the culinary skills of visitors and rise interest and respect for tasty, trendy mouthwatering eatables.|
These events are designed in such way to highlight the innovations that family farmers are using to alleviate hunger, poverty, and environmental degradation along with the campaigns and policies that support them. Debates, Dialogues, exhibitions and rallies will be organized for different sections of the population to create awareness and interest in our own food and agriculture
