The Forum prior to the CFS Plenary Session is held each year and it is open to all interested civil society participants of the CSIPM. At the Forum the common positions to be presented at the CFS Plenary Session are discussed and finalised. The Forum is also a space for accountability, where CC members report about their work, performance and activities. 

Below you will find useful information to participate in both the CSIPM Forum and the 50th Session of the Committee on World Food Security (CFS).


The CSIPM Forum will take place on Sunday 9 October 2022 in a hybrid format at the Oly Hotel, Rome from 9:30 to 18:30 (Rome time CEST) and online.
