Global Nutrition Cluster

GNC meetings

The Global Nutrition Cluster organizes annual meetings as well as separate face-to-face meetings. These meetings are an opportunity where cluster partners and the GNC Coordination Team can update each other on technical NiE issues, cluster Work Plan progress and lessons learned from the field and also provide a forum for activity related decision making. Starting from November 2012 regular conference calls between GNC partners were established to discuss urgent issues and progress towards joint decisions.
