Global Nutrition Cluster

The Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) was established in 2006 with a vision to safeguard and improve the nutritional status of emergency affected populations by ensuring a coordinated, appropriate response that is predictable, timely, effective and at scale. The GNC is made up of 40 partner organizations and two organisations-observers at global level.

09-April -14  Dear Global Nutrition Cluster partners,

I am pleased to share with you the fourth issue of the GNC Bulletin, which provides key updates on the work of the GNC and country cluster work. This issue features updates from the recent GNC Face-to-Face Working meeting that took place in February 2014 in Geneva, process with the costing of the GNC 2 year workplan as well as updates on the new SAG and RRTs.

For the country level update, we present the result of the recent Cluster Coordination Performance Monitoring (CCPM) exercises that took place in Somalia and Chad, supported by GNC/RRT in collaboration with the country cluster coordinators. The CCPM update covers the process, the results and the discussions and lessons learned. This month, the GNC partners in collaboration with the SAG members will finalise a three year GNC strategy document, which includes a costed two-year workplan (WP). The GNC SOP has also been updated and all will be shared at the end of April 2014. All document are key in guiding GNC work and our support to countries.

We would like to thank all the GNC partners in contributing in the development of the strategy, the costed WP and in updating the SOP. We look forward engaging you further in fundraising for the WP and the implementation of those activities. Read the full  GNC Bulletin, Issue No IV
