The 2018 edition of the State of Food and Agriculture (SOFA), one of FAO’s annual flagship publications, will focus on migration and the challenges it poses to food security as well as to peace and stability.
The CFS was reformed in the aftermath of the 2007/8 food crisis to become an inclusive body bringing all actors involved in food security and nutrition together in one forum. CFS is also the foremost platform in the complex UN system to discuss all issues relevant to food and nutrition security with the aim to achieve policy convergence. CFS is meant to capture many divergent interests and to attempt to create consensus and provide science-based policy recommendations to serve Member States around the world. Every party involved in the CFS has a vested interest, responsibility and mandate to work collectively to bring about positive change in the lives of the most vulnerable to end hunger and malnutrition.
