The CFS is the United Nations’ forum for reviewing and following up on policies concerning world food security. It also examines issues which affect the world food situation. It was established as a result of the food crisis of the 1970s, upon recommendation from the 1974 World Food Conference.
During 2009 the CFS underwent a reform process in order to include a wider group of stakeholders and increase its impact in promoting polices to reduce food insecurity
