Developing the NIPN structure

The first guidance note of this section, Setting up National Information Platform for Nutrition in a Country, describes a number of important steps and criteria to take into account during the preparation phase of a NIPN platform at country level:

  • Is a country ready for NIPN?
  • Which structures can become NIPN actors?
  • What are the risks and potential mitigation measures?
  • What are the first activities to initiate NIPN?

The second note provides guidance and country experiences in Setting up a Multisectoral Advisory Committee (MAC). The MAC provides a high-level and strategic link to the existing multisectoral nutrition coordination system and plays a key role in several steps of the NIPN operational cycle.

The third guidance note aims to identify the scope of capacities required for effective implementation of NIPN at country level, to provide guidance on how to assess existing capacity to implement a NIPN in country and identify gaps, and to support the preparation of a country NIPN Capacity Development Plan.
