Step 1: Identify the capacity requirements for NIPN (5/5)

Completing the NIPN matrix: systemic level

The systemic level refers to the national system or ‘enabling environment’ for nutrition. The systemic capacities are the same for all three elements of the NIPN operational cycle.

In most NIPN countries, a landscape analysis has already been completed to assess the national nutrition structures and system. This has either been done by the NIPN country team or entities such as the SUN Movement Networks. This landscape analysis can be used to identify where the system is functioning sub-optimally and requires to be strengthened. Though the main purpose of NIPN is not to strengthen the systemic nutrition capacity in a country, a NIPN may support other agencies that are doing so.
