The VGGT, together with CFS-RAI, represent an international response to the serious risks posed to tenure rights, and associated human rights, by weak governance of tenure. That response reflects, and is informed by, international human rights law. Breach of the standards laid down in those instruments poses a risk to the fulfilment of a range of human rights obligations including the right to life, the right to health and the right to food, as well as civil and political rights. The ways in which human rights law is relevant to, and addresses, the impacts of large scale agricultural investments are extensively covered in FAO’s technical guidance, and in human rights jurisprudence and the reports of human rights bodies, as well as in the writings of commentators. The CFS-RAI and OECD/FAO Guidance support the standards laid down in the VGGT and provide further guidance in observing other relevant human rights.
