Nutrition Cluster Advocacy Strategic Framework and Toolkit

The Nutrition Cluster Advocacy Strategic Framework (2016-2019) and Advocacy Toolkit is now available. The Strategic Framework aims to provide high level overall strategic direction and focus for Nutrition Cluster advocacy efforts to ensure linkages across global and country levels and cluster partners and to support the development of common messages and activities to leverage impact. It is accompanied by a country toolkit, as a practical guide for advocacy. The toolkit provides key questions for reflection, basic advocacy pointers and some advocacy tools to support Nutrition Cluster partners through the different stages of the advocacy cycle with a specific focus on advocacy for nutrition in humanitarian contexts. Previous advocacy experiences from the Nutrition Cluster and its partner organisations are used to illustrate the different areas in which advocacy can work.

The Strategic Framework (English, French and Spanish) and Toolkit (English) are available online

Cluster Guidance for mainstreaming accountability to affected populations

Guidance for Mainstreaming Accountability to Affected Population (AAP) and Core People-Related Issues in the Humanitarian Programme Cycle Through the Cluster System has been jointly produced by the Global Nutrition and Global Food Security Clusters with the support of HelpAge International. It aims to support national clusters to implement their commitments on AAP and core people-related issues both before the beginning of a response (preparedness) and throughout the Humanitarian Programme Cycle.  The guidance is accompanied by a Nutrition Cluster Operational Framework on AAP. This framework and associated tools are intended for use by nutrition clusters partners, cluster lead agencies and cluster coordination staff, responsible for policy and programme design, implementation and evaluation. They should be used in conjunction with each agency’s own accountability framework, and serve as a bridge between actors and agencies, through the cluster, to negotiate common or collective approaches.

The Guidance (English, French and Spanish) and Operational Framework (English) are available online.
