Welcome to the NIPN toolkit

This toolkit contains a set of guidance notes developed by the NIPN Global Support Facility in collaboration with some of the NIPN country teams and members of the NIPN Expert Advisory Group. It aims:

  • To support countries in applying a coherent and high-quality NIPN approach.
  • To provide specific guidance for areas that are particularly challenging.
  • To develop the capacity of countries to apply the NIPN approach.
    The toolkit guides and supports those directly involved in driving the NIPN – the NIPN host organisations, country teams and multi-sectoral advisory committees – in applying and adapting to their own context the NIPN approach, scope, core principles and dialogue that are described in the introduction.
    The guidance notes and tools are then presented along the four elements of the NIPN approach: setting up the NIPN structure (section 1), formulating nutrition policy questions (section 2), managing and analysing data (section 3), and communicating and disseminating findings (section 4).
    The content of the toolkit shown below can be navigated in a linear way by using the arrows at the bottom of the screen or by section and sub-section using the menu on the left.
