The World Food Summit, scheduled to take place in Rome from 13 to 17 November 1996, convening Heads of State and Government, will seek to renew the commitment of world leaders at the highest level to the eradication of hunger and malnutrition and the achievement of lasting food security for all. It is anticipated that governments, international institutions and all sectors of civil society from around the world will participate in this forum to address all aspects of food security and the root causes of hunger and malnutrition. A number of activities and meetings have been scheduled in advance of the November meeting including consultations with governments, intergovernmental and non-governmental organisations and the private sector.
