Toolkit for Addressing Nutrition in Emergency Situations

A Toolkit for Addressing Nutrition in Emergency Situations is now available. The toolkit was developed by the Capacity Development Working Group of the IASC Nutrition Cluster with the participation of a wide range of humanitarian nutrition actors.

The toolkit describes tools and approaches for 12 different nutrition interventions:

The toolkit offers guidance and support for nutritionists and humanitarian workers to ensure that basic guidelines are followed and the basic nutritional needs of populations in emergencies are met. It is not intended to be an exhaustive resource for each intervention presented, but rather an overview of potential interventions. The toolkit contains key references and links to more detailed technical guidance.

The document can be downloaded from the Nutrition Cluster website: http://www.humanitarianreform.org/humanitarianreform/Default.aspx?tabid=74

A limited number of copies are available on mini-CD, contact Josephine Rajasegera, email: jragasegera@unicef.org
