Coverage Matters: A collation of content on coverage monitoring of CMAM programmes (June 2014)

Author: The ENN and the Coverage Monitoring Network (ENN)
Year: 2014
Resource type: Report

Coverage assessments have become integral to many CMAM programmes, either as part of a monitoring strategy or as specific activities in the cycle of the project. Reports, publications, peer-review articles, conferences, workshops and trainings centred on coverage measurement now feature heavily in the nutrition sector. The Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) team has been involved in many of the discussions about how to achieve and measure coverage and over the past couple of years, ENN's publication, Field Exchange, has contained many articles on coverage.

To improve accessibility, key articles, published in 2012 and 2013, have been compiled into this special coverage publication, in a collaboration between the ENN and the Coverage Monitoring Network (CMN). The featured articles cover a range of content, from the importance of attaining coverage in measuring the impact of CMAM programmes (page 3) to the need to set up coherent coverage standards (page 5) to passionate but constructive methodological discussions (see section 2 page 14). Many of the methodological innovations described have come about due to limitations of existing coverage tools forcing development adapted to field programmes and easily integrated into regular monitoring activities. Arguably the most interesting results are those coming from field programmes implementing coverage assessments; the last section (page 19) collates examples of lessons learned in Chad, Mali, Mauritania and Pakistan, as well as in urban and insecure contexts.
