The High Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE) was established in 2010 as the science-policy interface of the UN Committee on World Food Security (CFS).  The HLPE aims to improve the robustness of policy making by providing independent, evidence-based analysis and advice at the request of CFS.
