Guidance

The ENN will undertake technical projects, including the development of nutrition guidance, where the project will significantly contribute to knowledge to support programming in the sector where there are significant gaps, and where the agency is open to sectoral sharing.

For example, the ENN is the insitutional home for policy guidance on infant and young child feeding in emergencies, recently partnered with UNHCR in the development of guidance on the handling of breastmilk substitutes in refugee situations and with UNHCR and UCL Institute of Global Health to support the development of guidance for the management of and treatment of anaemia in refugee populations.
