Shaping commitments to improve nutrition data and accountability in support of food, health and prosperity for all
The Nutrition Data Partner Group has released a brief aiming at advising governments, donors and development partners on the formulation of data-specific commitment for the Nutrition for Growth (N4G) Summit which will take place in Tokyo at the end of the year, 7-8 December. Sample commitments that can be adapted to country contexts can also be found in the short paper: “investing in information platforms at central or decentralized level to support decision making” is one of them. The full document can be accessed HERE.

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.
