What is the CFS?

The reformed Committee on World Food Security (CFS), as adopted in it’s 35th session in October, is an intergovernmental body working with multi stakeholders towards the “elimination of hunger and ensuring food security and nutrition for all human beings”.

For the first time in history, civil society played a fundamental role in the shaping and design of the reform proposal. It is with this victory, that civil society must continue to have a prominent place in influencing and ensuring that the CFS will be accountable for following through on it’s promises.
