The European Commission (EC) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) has jointly agreed to initiate the C4N to enhance capacities, governance and accountability for evidence-based and inclusive nutrition policy response and programming in priority countries, regions and global institutions. This includes to provide global support for the NIPN initiative, to help countries to develop a National Information Platform for Nutrition, and to coordinate the technical assistance and capacity building required.

The main role of the C4N-NIPN is to:
• Coordinate the initiative within and between countries
• Support countries to design and establish each NIPN
• Build capacity and provide technical assistance
• Link with SUN and other initiatives to ensure coherence.

From January 2020 NIPN is being implemented by C4N, implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, in Brussels, Belgium.

From 2016 to 2019, global support for NIPN has been managed by the Global Support Facility at Agrinatura, the European alliance on agricultural knowledge for development and hosted by Agropolis International in Montpellier, France.
