Meetings and Training
ENN collaborates with other agencies to facilitate meetings and training courses to contribute to lesson learning and capacity development of individuals and agencies working in emergency nutrition and food security.
ENN hosted a CMAM scale up conference in November 2011 in collaboration with the Government of Ethiopia. The conference aimed to contribute to lesson learning in the sector by providing a 'live' forum for the discussion of issues relating to national scale up of CMAM from a government perspective. The conference was co-funded by DFID, Irish Aid and CIDA.
A synthesis from lessons of government experiences of scale up of community-based management of acute malnutrition (CMAM) has been produced since the conference and is available here.
ENN is also partnering with NutritionWorks (NW) to develop in-service and pre-service training at the national level, funded by the US Office for Foreign Disaster Assistance, and with the UCL Centre for International Health and Development (CIHD) to provide regional professional training, with support from the OFDA.
