Summary in English
In adopting the Rome Declaration on World Food Security and the World Food Summit (WFS) Plan of Action in 1996, Canada committed to reporting to the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, every two years, on progress in implementing its commitments. This document is a progress report on the overall level of Canada's implementation of the people-centred social commitments of the WFS Plan of Action as outlined in Commitments 1, 2, 5, and 7. As such, it covers significant food security related policies, programs and activities that have been initiated in Canada between the time of our last report, December 1997, to the end of 1999. Commitments 3, 4, and 6 will be reported on in year 2002.
