The Nutrition Cluster Advocacy Strategic Framework

Advocacy as a cluster core function was included in the Nutrition Cluster Strategic Plan 2014-2016 for the first time. The new Nutrition Cluster Advocacy Strategic Framework 2016-2019 provides overall strategic direction and focus for Nutrition Cluster advocacy efforts to ensure linkages across global and country levels and cluster partners. The strategy aims to help towards the development of common messages and activities to leverage impact.

Three Advocacy Goal areas have been identified through an extensive consultative process with cluster partners. They identify outcome statements for an enhanced response to the nutritional needs of emergency affected populations.

Each Advocacy Goal area is supported by Objectives, Results and Indicators specifying the changes required to contribute to the achievement of the Goal. For each result, the Framework assesses the current external context and barriers to be addressed, opportunities ahead for influencing, and the Nutrition Cluster role.

Three types of Indicators to support the monitoring and evaluation of cluster advocacy are proposed: Indicators of policy change; Indicators of significant steps towards policy/practice change; and progress Indicators.

The three Advocacy Goals

Goal 1 - Humanitarian response is well coordinated, aligned and integrated for an effective, timely and quality nutrition response to address the nutritional needs of emergency-affected populations.

Goal 2 - Sufficient resources are mobilised for an effective, timely and quality nutrition response to address the nutritional needs of emergency-affected populations

Goal 3 - Appropriate preparedness, response and recovery strategies are included as part of the global and nutrition agendas to safeguard the nutritional needs of emergency-affected populations
