Committee on World Food Security

Making a difference in food security and nutrition


In response to the CFS Independent Evaluation conducted in 2016-17, a Plan of Action was prepared with all the proposed actions to address the evaluation recommendations. The Implementation Report documents the implementation of the Plan of Action. Both documents were endorsed at CFS 45 in October 2018.

The Implementation Report seeks to clarify or revitalize particular elements of the 2009 reform to strengthen CFS as the most inclusive international and intergovernmental platform on food security and nutrition considering the recent rises in hunger and malnutrition (The State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World, 2018), the new global food security and nutrition environment shaped by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, follow-up to the Second International Conference on Nutrition (ICN2), the UN Decade of Action on Nutrition, the UN Decade on Family Farming and other relevant initiatives.
