    3rd EAG meeting - May 2019

    The 3rd Expert Advisory Group (EAG) meeting took place on May 21st in Amsterdam gathering 19 participants. The discussions focused on NIPN implementation challenges, the learning and adaptation agenda and the road towards institutionalising the NIPN approach in countries. The main recommendations from the experts, applying both to the global and the national levels, were about building self-reflection moments throughout implementation, ensuring the quality of NIPN outputs at all levels (data, analysis, interpretation, communication) and building an extended NIPN network to create a set of influential allies to build the visibility and the credibility of the NIPN. The EAG meeting was followed by the NIPN Global Gathering, so that those recommendations could be discussed directly with NIPN country teams. View the report.

    1st NIPN Global Gathering - July 2018

    This three-day Global Gathering of the NIPN allowed all the 60+ participants from the 10 participating countries to feel part of a whole, created a common understanding of NIPN, enabled discussion of technical matters, implementation needs, opportunities and bottlenecks, and encouraged collaboration and sharing across countries. The most telling statistics in the final evaluation were that 77% of the participants felt their country NIPNs had been strengthened by the gathering, the same number believed the gathering had helped their teams to progress, and 90% went away feeling that they now know what the next steps are in their countries.
