The High Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) on food security and nutrition has been created as part of the reform of the international governance of food security to advise the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) which is the foremost intergovernmental and international platform dealing with food security and nutrition. The Committee reports to the UN General Assembly through the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and to FAO Conference.
An important role of the HLPE is to keep CFS up to date with world wide knowledge and abreast of emerging trends in food security, thus supporting informed policy debates and improving the quality, effectiveness and coherence of food security and nutrition policies.
Its 10th report was published and presented on 1 July 2016. The full report is available in English, summary and recommendations are available in six langauges from the HLPE website.
