the worst form of depriviation. At the 1996 World Food Summit, a commitment was
made to achieve food security for all, eradicate hunger in all countries and halve the
number of people suffering rom hunger and malnutrition by the year 2015. Though India
has achieved self-sufficiency in food grains, concerns remain in regard to food security
and intra-household distribution. ]

[ The right to water exists in various State legislations and relevant provisions.
However, in some legislations, it
is defeated by a general waiver of the government's obligations, which rely on
numerous phrases and clauses, such
as "subject to availability of resources", "as far as practical", "try to supply" etc.
This publication exposes
such unwillingness on the part of State or Municipalities to ensure adequate
supply of wholesome water, fit for
human consumption. It shows to the consumer her/his rights to water.

[ This paper examines the question of food security vis-a-vis food availability and
self sufficiency in production.
Given the cropping pattern in Kerala, it is unrealistic to expect food self
sufficiency. However, through a
pro-poor public policy regime, Kerala has been able to enhance food security
considerably. As such it offers
important lessons in ensuring food security in the context of food deficit in
internal supply as well as the
existence of a sizeable section of the population below the poverty line.

[ Public distribution of foodgrains in India is a national policy, which exists in all
states. In some states,
however, the public distribution system (PDS) works much better than in other
states. Bihar is one of the states in
which the policy works poorly. It is important to understand why this is the case.
Generally, policy changes and
recommendations do not take the specificities of particular states into account.
Yet, for the PDS performance to
improve in Bihar, it is necessary to understand what are the bottlenecks.
