The UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has published Budget Work to Advance the Right to Food: "Many a slip…." Drawing on the experiences of budget work in a number of countries, "Many a slip…" sets out a step-by-step process for analyzing a government's budget to assess its compliance with its right to food obligations. While the focus is on right to food-related issues, the process described is readily adaptable to work on other rights as well. The guide, the product of a project coordinated by IHRIP with substantial input from the International Budget Partnership (IBP) and other organizations, also contains information about initiatives in three countries to produce a "right to food budget." The guide is available in hard copy as well as at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations website. For further information about "Many a slip…", write to
