Activity A: Outcome of the mapping exercise
The outcomes of the mapping exercise can be captured in a matrix summarising the key opportunities for influencing policy, programming and investment decisions (see Matrix Part I below).
- Each row in the matrix relates to a specific piece of information that has been collected during the mapping.
- Each column provides information relating to the policies, plans, programming and investments for one sector.
The matrix example includes information from a fictional country. Only two columns have been filled (for multi-sectoral nutrition and agriculture). A full matrix would include further columns for all sectors that influence nutrition.
