Research

Through our overview of programming experience and challenges, the ENN is in a good position to identify priority areas for research and reviews in the emergency nutrition and food security sectors. In some cases, the ENN leads operational research to fill knowledge gaps through strong partnerships with independent experts, academic institutions, and UN agencies and NGOs.  Our aim is to strengthen the evidence base for interventions.

Nutrition assessment in NigerThe ENN’s main areas of research are the prevention and treatment of moderate acute malnutrition (MAM) and the management of acute malnutrition in infants under 6 months (MAMI). The ENN has also supported research on anaemia and micronutrient deficiencies on behalf of UNHCR in collaboration with UCL. Click on the links below to find out more about these research projects.
