Activity B: Identify initial questions
After having completed the policy review, the next activity will be to:
- Engage with the sectoral government counterpart and request them to formulate one to two priority policy questions which they consider highly relevant to their sector
- Capture these inputs in Part II of the matrix on key opportunities for influencing policy, programming and investment decisions (see example below)
|PART II: DRAFT POLICY QUESTIONS||MULTISECTORAL NUTRITION||AGRICULTURE|
|Example question 1||Is the plan having an impact on stunting?||How much impact have the nutrition-sensitive agricultural interventions had on stunting reduction?|
|Example question 2||Will the plan meet its targets by 2020? At national and regional level? If not, which interventions need to be prioritised to accelerate progress?||Which interventions should be prioritised to achieve the maximum impact on nutrition outcomes under the Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Strategic Plan?|
The matrix exercise allows questions to be collected based on stakeholders’ priorities and sense of importance. At this stage, there is no need to apply other criteria; this will be done in the next steps.
