The 2010 Trócaire Development Review deals with the challenging issues of hunger, the right to food and food security. A variety of themes are discussed within this context, including how to incorporate the right to food into governments’ planning, Ireland’s role in promoting that right, ways to raise children's awareness of world hunger, the World Trade Organisation and food security, the Irish government’s Hunger Task Force, EU policy on food security, and conservation agriculture. In addition, several recently-published key texts on development are reviewed.
