You will find the link to the quality rating below, labelled as ‘Part 4’ of the report, and the executive feedback summary labelled as ‘Part 5’.


The Africa Nutrition Security Partnership (ANSP) aims at increasing the commitment to nutrition security in terms of policies, budgets, effective programming and implementation in close collaboration with the national governments of Burkina Faso and Mali In West Africa and Ethiopia and Uganda in East Africa. ANSP closely collaborates with the African Union at continental level and with the regional organizations of West Africa and East Africa.
