The Committee on World Food Security (CFS) was established in 1974 and reformed in 2009 as the foremost inclusive international and intergovernmental platform for all stakeholders to work together to ensure food security and nutrition for all. CFS develops and endorses policy recommendations and guidance on a wide range of food security and nutrition topics.
The 50th Session of the Committee on World Food Security “Making a Difference in Food Security and Nutrition” will be held from 10 to 13 October 2022. The Plenary will endorse two policy products: the Voluntary Guidelines on Gender Equality and Women’s and Girls’ Empowerment and the Policy Recommendations on Promoting Youth Engagement and Employment in Agriculture and Food Systems. Additionally, CFS 50 will discuss the 2022 State of Food Security and Nutrition report, review the work of CFS toward 2030, and kickstart a workstream on data collection and analysis for food security and nutrition.
