To quote from the ENN introduction: ‘Developing an effective monitoring and evaluation system for multisector nutrition responses is formidable – it takes time, resources and dedication, alongside strong coordination and, above all, collaboration’. The full issue can be downloaded HERE.
In line with the “2030 Agenda for SDG 2: End hunger, achieve food security, improved nutrition, and promotion of sustainable agriculture”, the National Information Platforms for Nutrition (NIPN) has the pleasure to present the 4th Global Gathering taking place from 4-6 October 2022. This year the meeting will be in a hybrid format and will take place simultaneously in Grand Bassam, Côte d’Ivoire, and Mombasa, Kenya. The meeting theme will be “Accelerating for results” aiming to take a step forward in the transition towards the forthcoming NIPN phase II and building on achievements from phase I.

The launch of NIPN Phase II (2022-2025) will take place at the NIPN Global Gathering in October 2022. Phase II has already started in an approach suited to each NIPN country’s specific situation, beginning last year with the extension of the NIPN platform in Guatemala. Mali will join the NIPN initiative this year, while NIPN Bangladesh was closed in February 2022. Technical and management support will be provided by C4N-NIPN in Ethiopia, Mali and Niger; by UNICEF in Uganda, Côte d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Kenya, and Lao PDR; and by Centro Agronómico Tropical de Investigación y Enseñanza (CATIE) in Guatemala.
