SECTION 4: POLICY, PROGRAMME, AND OTHER RECOMMENDATIONS

Taking into account the progressive realization of the right to adequate food in the context of national food security and in the context of the overarching frameworks described in Section 3, there is broad international consensus on appropriate policy responses to the underlying causes of hunger and malnutrition in a number of areas. The recommendations in this Section are drawn from decisions reached in CFS and in several cases they have been informed by evidence-based reports from the CFS High-Level Panel of Experts on Food Security and Nutrition (HLPE). The list is not comprehensive and will develop over time as the GSF is regularly updated to take account of decisions of CFS. Section 6 lists a number of areas where there are recognized gaps in consensus in policy issues.
