The second meeting of the NIPN Expert Advisory Group (EAG) was held in Brussels on March 21st, a day after the members of the EAG had participated in a nutrition seminar organized by the European Union for delegates from EU delegations and their partners. The seminar discussed nutrition as a critical determinant of a country’s human and social development and benefitted from presentations made by several NIPN expert advisors. The EAG meeting on 21st specifically focused on the progress of the NIPN initiative, and was joined by SUN focal persons from five NIPN countries who spoke briefly about their experiences. The meeting highlighted the main opportunities and challenges that are arising now that projects are being implemented in nine countries, and recommendations were made by members of the EAG to be taken up by the team in the NIPN Global Support Facility.
