Thank you, Madam President. I make this statement also on behalf of the Coalition of African Lesbians and the Sexual Rights Initiative.

We welcome the Special Rapporteur's report’s emphasis on the interconnectedness and indivisibility not only of human rights but of the structures and institutions that threaten, ignore and infringe on these rights and ultimately the right to food.

Statement by the Coalition of African Lesbians

Thank you, Madam. President. I make this statement on behalf of the Coalition of African Lesbians and the Sexual Rights Initiative.

We welcome the Independent Expert’s report and its links between public and private foreign debt, corporate debt and the effects of the commodification and financialization of essential services on the realization of economic, social and cultural rights and on increasing inequality worldwide.
