The work priorities for the CFS have been determined for 2013 and focus on four topics:

  1. Policy discussions based on the High Level Panel of Experts’ studies:
    • Constraints on smallholder investment
    • Biofuels
  2. Responsible agricultural investment principles (RAI)
  3. Protracted Crises – Development of an Agenda for Action on food security and nutrition in countries in protracted crises

CFS 2014

In 2014, CFS will hold a session on a ten year retrospective on progress made in implementing the Voluntary Guidelines to Support the Progressive Realization of the Right to Adequate Food in the Context of National Food Security. It will also be the target date for the final approval of the Responsible Agricultural Investment principles.
