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.

On March 15th the National Information Platform for Nutrition Uganda was launched during the Second Uganda National Nutrition Forum. The Platform will build the capacity of staff in the Office of the Prime Minister, the Uganda Bureau of Statistics and collaborating ministries to use evidence and data to develop policies and programmes to improve human nutrition. UNICEF will provide technical support for data analysis. “I hope that through the National Information Platform for Nutrition, we will start looking at nutrition differently and in an innovative way” said EU Ambassador Attilio Pacifici, adding that “with this new initiative and other programmes such as the ‘Development Initiative for Northern Uganda’ (DINU), the EU will contribute considerably to achieve the objectives of the Second Uganda National Nutrition Forum, to prevent chronic malnutrition and to improve the health and nutrition of the next generation of Ugandan citizens”.

A one-week consultation and workshop was held from January 8-12 by CATIE, the organisation responsible for supporting the government of Guatemala to implement their NIPN. The expectations and contributions of stakeholders were discussed with the Food and Nutrition Security Secretariat (SESAN) and with ministries involved in the National Nutrition and Food Security Policy (PESAN) and in the National Strategy for Preventing Chronic Malnutrition 2016-2020 (ENPDC). The NIPN will support the National Information System for Food Security and Nutrition (SIISAN) and strengthen the capacity of key ministries involved in the ENPDC.
