    The Committee on World Food Security: NGOs and the reporting process.


    The World Food Summit (WFS) charged the UN Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO) Committee on World Food Security (CFS) with monitoring the implementation of the WFS's Plan of Action and target for reducing the number of undernourished people. In April 1997, the CFS held its first discussions about the monitoring procedures and heard reports from countries that had begun development of national action plans. In 1997-98, a provisional reporting system will allow governments, UN agencies, and other international organizations to report on actions taken to implement the commitments contained in the WFS Plan of Action. In June 1998, the CFS considered a standard reporting format for the future. During 1997, all of the FAO technical committees discussed WFS follow-up, and follow-up will be included on the agendas of 1998 FAO regional conferences. All reports submitted to the CFS will be widely disseminated. Part of the WFS process will include further monitoring of the 1992 International Conference on Nutrition commitments. The CFS also encouraged the continued involvement of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and took measures to broaden NGO participation.

    This statement by the Committee for International Cooperation in National Research in Demography (CICRED) reiterates its aims and activities in providing population information through its publications and in maintaining contact with national population research centers. Since 1971, CICRED has provided quarterly computerized abstracts of 80 population reviews, which summarize about 1200 articles annually. A multilingual thesaurus has been available in English, French, and Spanish on computer disc and will soon be available in Arabic, Portuguese, and Chinese. 19 national monographs on aging will be available after 1993 in complete and summary form with a focus on the demographic, health, and economic implications of aging. 10 monographs on the impact of international migration on receiving countries were distributed in 1993. A regional assessment of the population research potential in developing countries has been conducted in Latin America, Asia and the Pacific, and Africa. Other conference proceedings have been published on the following topics: the impact of family planning on fertility change, integration of population factors into the socioeconomic planning process, the links between population and the environment, and the demographic impact of mortality.
