Current Projects

SCALING-UP NUTRITION (SUN) MOVEMENT : Working with Health Partners International on the PATH-led consortium Maximising Quality of Scaling-up of Nutrition (SUN). NutritionWorks has been providing support to national level SUN movements and stakeholders in Yemen, Ghana, El Salvador, Pakistan and Lao PDR. We have been working on contextual analysis, multi-sector nutrition package selection for planning and costing exercises. We have also been reviewing and supporting the El Salvador SUN movement on their Nutrition Capacity Building strategy. The consortium partners also include PATH, ICF International and Institute of Development Studies (IDS).

NutritionWorks have contributed to this SUN Movement Synthesis Report.

SUPPORT TO IRISH AID ON SCALING UP NUTRITION: Providing support to Irish Aid through a ‘draw down’ consultancy since March 2014. The work, led by Emily Mates, has involved providing comments and advice for Ireland’s engagement in international initiatives including the SUN movement, support for Ireland’s ‘resource tracking’ exercise conducted by members of the SUN donor network, support for country offices, review of key developments in nutrition and the provision of ad hoc support. The support also entails a ‘stocktake’ of Ireland’s nutrition engagements to date with suggestion of possible strategic options for Ireland to engage with in the future. 

UNICEF HQ - STRENGTHENING HUMANITARIAN ACTION: NutritionWorks is currently conducting two pieces of work for UNICEF HQ to strengthen nutrition humanitarian action through support to Nutrition Information Systems (NIS) and Humanitarian Sector Coordination Transition.

Nutrition Information Systems

The aims to improve UNICEF’s ability to adapt Nutrition Information Systems (NIS) to address needs before, during and after emergencies.  NutritionWorks is conducting consultations in order to:

  • Outline key considerations for optimal NIS for emergency preparedness
  • Highlight good practices from countries on NIS basic actions
  • Propose methods/key questions for countries to undertake NIS self-assessment for emergency preparedness


Nutrition Cluster Coordination Transition

Building on a Nutrition Cluster Transition study conducted in 2015, NutritionWorks, in collaboration with the GNC and the UNICEF Nutrition in Emergencies (NiE) Team, is working on phase 2 of the study as a next step in developing comprehensive guidance for UNICEF for operationalizing investments in nutrition coordination in preparedness, response and transition. This includes developing a framework, guidance note and benchmarks to guide countries on sector coordination to effectively support timely transition.
