The Committee on World Food Security (CFS) was set up in 1974 as an intergovernmental body to serve as a forum for review and follow up of food security policies. In 2009 the Committee went through a reform process to ensure that the voices of other stakeholders were heard in the global debate on food security and nutrition. The vision of the reformed CFS is to be the most inclusive international and intergovernmental platform for all stakeholders to work together in a coordinated way to ensure food security and nutrition for all.
The 51st session of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS 51) will take place on the theme, ‘Making a Difference in Food Security and Nutrition’. A high-level opening ceremony will feature a discussion on strengthening coordinated policy responses to the food crisis, including consideration of the latest edition of the State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World report (SOFI 2023).
