NIPN @ SUN GG - November 2017

NIPN was involved in the organisation of a parallel session on ’nutrition data revolution’ during the SUN Global Gathering held in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, in November 2017. The session was facilitated by representatives of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the panel comprised the General Secretary of the Niger ’3N’ initiative, who presented the NIPN; the SUN Focal Person from Mali, who showcased the NEP experience; and the SUN Focal Person from Lao PDR, who spoke from a ’data poor’ country perspective. In conclusion, the DFID representative gave a joint statement on behalf of the SUN donor network reaffirming the donors’ commitment to nutrition data, and putting forward the NIPN initiative as a modest but very important step towards that commitment.
