Committee on World Food Security (CFS) 44
October 9 - 13: The Committee on World Food Security (CFS) is an inclusive international and intergovernmental platform for all stakeholders to work together to ensure food security and nutrition for all. The Committee reports to the UN General Assembly through the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and to FAO Conference. Using a multi-stakeholder, inclusive approach, CFS develops and endorses policy recommendations and guidance on a wide range of food security and nutrition topics. These are developed starting from scientific and evidence-based reports produced by the High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) and through work supported technically by FAO, IFAD, WFP, and representatives of the CFS Advisory Group. CFS holds an annual Plenary session every October in FAO, Rome.
