How the Food Security Standard works: expected changes and benefits

In order to change agricultural production in a way that meets basic human rights standards, it is crucial to build a theory of change for the instruments used.


The FSS theory of change describes the necessary steps, assumptions and consequences to achieve its goals and describes the impacts that can be expected. Knowing and using it helps with the clarification of key stakeholders, expected short- and long-term benefits, and serves for internal and external communication, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.

The Food Security Standard (FSS) takes into account the Right to adequate Food in agricultural production. Applying the FSS in sustainability certification systems ensures that farmers, workers, and neighbouring communities are food secure.
