About /History of the IPC: The Plan of Action 1996 Forum for Food Security – Food for All not Profit for the Few – underscored the crucial role that civil society can play in implementing the commitments underwritten by governments, and that civil society involvement is vital if the goal of halving the number of undernourished people in the world by no later than the year 2015 is to be reached.

Our intensive preparations resulted in an active civil society presence at the WFS:fyl and a dynamic and productive NGO/CSO Forum for Food Sovereignty parallel to the Summit, in which three quarters of the delegates came from developing countries and the majority from organizations representing rural people. The Forum adopted an Action Agenda, to be carried out by the IPC, which identifies a series of priority areas to be acted upon at national/regional/global levels.
