Committee on Food Security
The Committee on World Food Security was revitalized in 2009-10 and re-launched in October 2010 as the principal political process through which Member States can promote inter-governmental efforts that should result in food security for all. The Committee?s membership also includes representatives of civil society, business, UN systems agencies, Bretton Woods Institutions and Research Institutions. The Committee is guided by a High Level Panel of Experts. One of the |Committee?s flagship projects is to develop a Global Strategic Framework for Food Security which will be endorsed by its members. To support the development of its Global Strategic Framework (GSF), the Committee has opened an online consultation on the Annotated Outline for the GSF (attached).

The online consultation is open until 15th October 2011
