On 14 January 2016, the first meeting of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) Open Ended Working Group on nutrition (OEWG) took place in Rome, Italy at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) headquarters. The meeting, which brought together members of the CFS Bureau, Advisory Group and other CFS stakeholders, addressed:
- The role of the OEWG on nutrition as foreseen in the Multi-Year Programme of Work (MYPoW)
- A proposal by the Technical Task Team (TTT) on the area of focus of the High Level Panel of Experts (HLPE) report on Nutrition and Food Systems to be launched at CFS plenary in 2017
- A proposal by the TTT for CFS’ further involvement of the Committee in nutrition; and the workplan of the OEWG on nutrition
The OEWG was established at the 42nd annual plenary session of the CFS (CFS42) to consider CFS’ role in advancing nutrition. The OEWG on nutrition will convene again on 24 February and 29 April 2016. The OEWG will report to CFS 43 in October 2016 and CFS 44 in October 2017.
