08 May Who is in and who is out of the Committee on World Food Security?
Well, this is not the most exciting of posts but I have just reviewed the list of member Nations in the Committee on World Food Security from 2009 (when the CFS underwent its reform), 2010 (first year post-reform) and today.
Today there are 121 member Nations, down from 123 in 2009.
Between 2009 and 2010, Latvia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, and Togo left the CFS but many countries joined, bringing the number of member Nations up to 126.
New countries were:
- Central African Republic
- Democratic Republic of the Condo
- The former Yugoslav
- Republic of Macedonia
Other Countries that were involved in the reform but has since left the Committee:
- Libyan Arab Jamahiriya
- Republic of Moldova
However, many countries, notably from across Africa, have joined or re-joined the CFS since 2009. These countries are:
- Syrian Arab Republic
