The United Nations system Network on Rural Development and Food Security is a global partnership for tackling development challenges at the country level. Established in 1997 by the Administrative Committee on Coordination (now CEB), it brings together key actors for the achievement of the shared goals of food for all and rural poverty reduction. Comprising 20 United Nations organizations, the Network is an inter-agency mechanism for follow-up to the World Food Summit (1996) and World Food Summit: five years later (2002) and supports the International Land Coalition.
