The Committee for World Food Security (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. The CFS annual plenary session 44 will take place in Rome from October 9 till 13, 2017 .  

The vision of the CFS is to be the most inclusive international and intergovernmental platform for all stakeholders to work together in a coordinated way to ensure food security and nutrition for all. It underwent reform in 2009 to ensure that the voices of other stakeholders were heard in the global debate on food security and nutrition. The Committee reports to the UN General Assembly through the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and to FAO Conference.

CFS hold annual plenary sessions which inform, debate and recommend actions to be taken by CFS stakeholders on food security and nutrition issues. Policy round tables are held to provide policy advice on the most topical issues. Between the sessions, there are regular meetings of the CFS Bureau and Advisory Group. CFS also contributes to various food security and nutrition related events and initiatives throughout the year.
