Global Technical Assistance Mechanism for Nutrition (GTAM) quarterly digest: Q3 1st August – 31st October

Author: GTAM
Year: 2019
Resource type: Report

The Global Technical Assistance Mechanism for Nutrition (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. It is co-led by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and World Vision International (WVI), in collaboration with a core team (GTAM-CT) consisting of Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN) as the knowledge management (KM) partner, the GNC and the Technical Rapid Response Team (Tech RRT). 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 consensus-driven guidance (through Global Thematic Working Groups (GTWGs) and normative agencies such as the World Health Organization (WHO), and provide specialised technical expertise. Wherever possible and appropriate, the GTAM seeks to leverage existing technical support mechanisms.

Summary

During this quarter of 2019, the GTAM-CT continued to develop and document operational ways of working for the GTAM as part of the ‘build’ phase. GTAM processes were further detailed; in particular, the process for escalating requests for technical advice to GTWGs (informed by specific experiences with the Infant and Young Child Feeding in Emergencies (IFE) Core Group). The Nutrition Information Systems (NIS) GTWG and the Cash Reference Group were fully operationalised, with membership and workplans in place, and initiated production of specific pieces of guidance (for conducting Nutrition Analysis for Humanitarian Needs Overviews and Cash in Emergencies for Nutrition respectively). Under the Technical Expertise Pillar (TEP), 12 vetted consultants were added to the consultant roster and six advisers were deployed.
