The online forum for country actors who need help and support with technical, policy, research or governance related nutrition questions

En-net is a free and open online resource run by the ENN for anyone working anywhere in the world who needs access to prompt technical support and advice. It is available in English and French.

A quick online registration process allows en-net users to post questions on any nutrition-specific or nutrition-sensitive topic. Questions are received by an ENN moderator, who directs the user to the appropriate resource/en-net exchange if the answer to the question is already available. If the question is not already covered, it is posted for all en-net users to view and to respond. This creates a thread of discussion and fosters peer-to-peer exchange. If the query cannot be answered by peer-to-peer interaction, the ENN moderator requests specialist technical input from other specialists.

En-net currently covers 18 thematic areas. Recent en-net discussion threads have included questions from practitioners on the following:
