National Information Platforms for Nutrition
(NIPN) is an initiative of the European Commission to provide support to countries to strengthen their information systems for nutrition and to improve the analysis of data so as to better inform the strategic decisions they are faced with to prevent malnutrition and its consequences
For those who missed the webinar on NIPN Phase II, recordings and powerpoint presentation are available here. In addition, the French and Spanish web pages now include the latest webinars on sustainability, data quality, and other themes.
If you missed the opportunity to take part in the NIPN Global Gathering you can now find all materials online. Aligning country platforms under common goals and capitalising experience and knowledge across countries – this was the overall objective of the 3rd NIPN Global Gathering virtually hosted by the C4N-NIPN Global Support in March 2021. As most countries have implemented fully or partially a NIPN operational cycle, the NIPN Global Gathering represented an opportunity to take stock and share experiences on NIPN successes and limitations in strengthening multisectoral national governance for nutrition.
The NIPN Global Support has published a brief with insights from the design, set-up and early implementation of highly complex multisectoral collaboration of NIPNs in nine different country and institutional contexts. It outlines in detail lessons learnt for the design and set-up of platforms to help overcome challenges, it particularly highlights conditions for successful collaboration: leadership, alignment of objectives, roles and responsibilities, equal power balance and adequate capacities. The NIPN Lessons Learned brief can be accessed on the NIPN website resources page.
