Etude des déterminants des politiques en matière de nutrition au Niger
Cette étude s’est intégrée dans un processus de consultations et de préparation de la mise en oeuvre d’une Plateforme Nationale d’Information pour la Nutrition au Niger. Elle répondait à la demande des partenaires de mieux comprendre le contexte des politiques publiques et des évidences qui soutiennent ces politiques en matière de nutrition. L’objectif général de l’étude était d’analyser les déterminants des politiques en matière de nutrition au Niger, c’est-à-dire comprendre les liens entre la politique multisectorielle de nutrition et les politiques sectorielles et les liens avec les évidences et analyses qui sous-tendent ces politiques. Le calendrier de l’étude a coïncidé pour partie avec le processus d’élaboration de la Politique Nationale de Sécurité Alimentaire (PNSN). Les données ont été collectées sur le dernier trimestre 2016 et le rapport rédigé sur le premier trimestre 2017.

A review of policies for improving human nutrition in Uganda and the use of evidence for making policy
A review of inter-sectoral and sectoral policy documents related to nutrition was undertaken and interviews were conducted with national policy-makers and stakeholders working in nutrition. The study reveals that some robust administrative procedures for policy making, planning, budgeting and implementation are in place and provide a good basis to increase the effectiveness of the implementation of programmes to improve nutrition. It also concludes that even if a large body of information related to the nutritional status of the Ugandan population is available, it may not necessarily meet the needs for information of decision makers or be easily accessible.
