Covid-19 Learning Series - Case Study 4

Author: Brenda Akwanyi and Philip James
Year: 2022
Resource type: Case study

In 2021, ENN embarked on a COVID-19 Learning Series that aimed to complement existing COVID-19 learning initiatives within the nutrition sector, making full use of our rich network and fora. A key focus of the series was on capturing the field-level experiences of those operating within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. ENN wanted the series to contribute to understanding the impacts of COVID-19 on nutrition issues in local communities as well as the challenges that COVID-19 presents for implementing nutrition services.

ENN produced four case studies and a synthesis document focusing on the role of entrepreneurs in supporting nutrition and health services during the pandemic; this is the fourth in the series.

Case study 4: Solvoz, an open-access digital procurement platform. The mission of Solvoz is to improve the efficiency, effectiveness and responsibility in procurement and planning processes of organisations working across humanitarian and development contexts. Its vision is to facilitate system change to localise (and so shorten) supply chains and empower local organisations. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to highlight the critical need for fast, effective, transparent supply chains and procurement procedures. This case study provides lessons on how effective, responsible procurement systems can have great relevance to donors and nutrition implementation organisations across both humanitarian and developmental contexts.
