Global Nutrition Cluster
Issue 27 | January 08, 2021
Dear all,

Welcome to 2021!

I would like to introduce to you the two new members of the GNC Coordination Team. Caroline Abla has joined us as Intersectoral Collaboration Helpdesk, and Jerome Shaguy was seconded from IMMAP to support us in streamlining reporting across nutrition clusters at global, regional, national and sub-national levels. We thank USAID for their funding for both positions.

Together with the SUN Movement Secretariat and USAID support, we are happy to release the Case study from Myanmar "Review of opportunities and challenges for strengthening humanitarian and development linkages for nutrition" in English. The French version of this case study, as well as case studies in Niger and Myanmar will be published shortly, followed by the Global Report with a summary of the findings.

Best regards,


Global Nutrition Cluster
