The Committee on Food Security

The Committee on World Food Security (CFS) was set up in 1974 as an intergovernmental body to serve as a forum in the United Nations System 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.
