EXERCISE 1: Start with understanding the magnitude and the trends of the undernutrition problem and the trends in relation to national or sub-national targets
Work with the data analysts to gain a picture of the magnitude and trends of the undernutrition problem: it is recommended that DHS and any other prevalence point from validated national surveys are used.
Draw the scenarios 1) if trends continue as usual, and 2) if national targets are to be met.
This exercise is to be repeated at the sub-administrative level (region, district) at which the NIPN cycle ‘questions-analysis-findings’ is strategically interested in focusing on. As data allow to do so, the NIPN cycle should strengthen the decentralized decision-making level as much as possible, and thus the questions identified also respond to that level.
