Global Technical Assistance Mechanism for Nutrition (GTAM) quarterly digest: Q2 1st April – 4th July 2019

Author: GTAM
Year: 2019
Resource type: Report

GTAM is a common global mechanism endorsed by over 40 Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) partners to provide systematic, predictable, timely and coordinated nutrition technical assistance in order to meet the nutrition rights and needs of people affected by emergencies. The GTAM is co-led by UNICEF and World Vision International (WVI) in collaboration with the Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN), the Tech Rapid Response Team (Tech RRT) and the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC). When country and regional capacities are exhausted, unresolved technical issues can be escalated to the GTAM. Depending on the issue, the GTAM will provide technical advice, facilitate the development of onsensus-driven global guidance or provide specialized technical expertise. Wherever possible and appropriate, the GTAM seeks to leverage existing technical support mechanisms.

Summary

During the second quarter of 2019, the GTAM-Core Team (GTAM-CT1 ) concentrated on creating operational ways of working and specifying the practical details of the GTAM as part of the “build phase”. During this critical period, it has been imperative to ensure that these details are reflective of the GTAM guiding principles, as collectively conceptualised and endorsed by the GNC collective. Delays in the development of the GTAM IT Platform prevented the online service from being launched this quarter as planned. However, the significant progress made in defining how the GTAM will work (including with Global Thematic Working Groups (GTWGs)) mean that it is otherwise set to become operational. Under the Technical Advice and Consensus Driven Guidance Pillars, priority technical gaps were pinpointed and processes begun to address them. Under the Technical Expertise Pillar (TEP), significant headway was made (with the involvement of interested partners) in defining ways of working in a Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) document and developing a concept note which can be used to seek resources for the TEP. Closing the quarter was a GTAM-focused day at the Annual GNC Meeting, during which the GTAM-CT updated the collective and sought inputs from GNC members.
