Agriculture to Nutrition 

The Agriculture to Nutrition (ATONU) project, part of the Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN), is providing online technical assistance to integrate nutrition into agriculture programmes. The tool enables users to:

(i) Select agriculture projects which offer the best opportunities;

(ii) Select, design and implement context-specific, nutrition-sensitive interventions (NSIs); and

(iii) Design monitoring and impact evaluation mechanisms for selected NSIs.

The Global Fortification Data Exchange

The Global Fortification Data Exchange (developed by the Food Fortification Initiative, GAIN, Iodine Global Network and the Micronutrient Forum) is an analysis and visualisation tool that maps data on food fortification, including indicators on legislation, available standards, food availability and intake for over 230 countries. Future plans are to include coverage data and the tool will continue to be updated with the most recent information and additional indicators.

Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) Image Bank

The Infant and Young Child Feeding (IYCF) Image Bank is a collection of over 700 images developed from adaptations of UNICEF’s Community Infant and Young Child Feeding Counselling Package. These and other similar images about recommended IYCF practices have been used in more than 70 countries for counselling and training to promote behaviour change for improved maternal and child nutrition.

Nutrition information systems assessment

An assessment of nutrition information systems for 57 SUN countries is available online following a mapping exercise as part of the DFID-funded Technical Assistance for Nutrition (TAN) project. Three categories were analysed: Government commitment and enabling environment (whether each country has a national nutrition policy, is tracking key global nutrition targets and has reviewed allocations for nutrition in the national budget); National assessment data (availability of nationally-representative survey data, and whether these surveys were conducted on a regular basis; i.e. every three to five years); and National performance monitoring data (whether countries closely monitor the delivery of nutrition interventions and whether there are currently systems in place that help countries understand the reach of those interventions. This includes information systems in other sectors (such as health, agriculture, education, water, sanitation and hygiene, social protection and early child development) that are able to track the performance of nutrition-sensitive interventions).This mapping research can help SUN countries to identify potential nutrition data gaps, help guide their national nutrition strategy, and better understand how nutrition information can be incorporated into their existing information systems in various sectors.
