Stunting in protracted emergencies

Under the development strand of funding provided by Irish Aid in 2015, ENN undertook a small review regarding stunting in protracted crisis. This scoping review looked at the implications of operating in situations of protracted crisis where levels of stunting may be high or more of a concern than wasting. It included a review of documents and informal discussions with a number of key nutrition actors representing donors and agencies. The purpose was to begin to explore the issues and pose questions, and in so doing get the issue of stunting in protracted emergencies higher up the nutrition agenda. A short report has been produced by Tanya Khara (lead author) and Jeremy Shoham and Carmel Dolan (contributing authors and ENN technical directors) and is being widely dissminated. 

In 2017 a discussion paper was released by Emily Mates, Jeremy Shoham and Tanya Khara (all ENN Technical Directors) on stunting in protracted emergencies.
