Technical Meeting on Nutrition 2014
Dates: 7th, 8th and 9th October 2014
Venue: Oxford, UK
Funders: OFDA, IA, UNHCR, ACF, Concern Worldwide and World Vision.
Facilitators: The ENN
ENN project lead: Emily Mates
The first Technical Meeting on Nutrition (TMN) was convened by the ENN in Oxford from
October 7th to 9th 2014. Core funding for the TMN was generously provided by
USAID/OFDA and Irish Aid, with UNHCR, ACF France, World Vision and Concern
Worldwide also contributing. The meeting was attended by around 120 delegates
comprising country representatives, United Nations (UN) agencies, non-governmental
organisations (NGOs), donors, academics and independents largely from nutrition; but
also some representatives from other sectors including water, sanitation and hygiene
(WASH), health and social protection (see Annex 1 for full list of participants).
The TMN was convened on the request of numerous actors in the nutrition sector and
aimed to provide a forum to address specific technical, programming and policy issues
relevant to nutrition in emergencies and high burden contexts, to share and appraise key
research and discuss ongoing policy and programme challenges, and to provide ‘space’
for informal technical exchange. To guide the process, an interagency steering group was
established who oversaw the agenda, participant invites, and helped select
the abstracts for presentation. An informal Advisory Group was also established to
develop the nutrition sensitive and international architecture/governance elements of the
The TMN agenda was carefully constructed to ensure as much ‘airtime’ as possible for the
various aspects of nutrition policy, research and programming highlighted in the submitted
abstracts. A total of 41 presentations were given in various formats (plenary, market place
and parallel sessions; click here for all abstracts and presentations). Time was also given for extensive question and answer sessions after each set of presentations.
The first morning provided a global overview of the current nutrition architecture, including
the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) movement. This was followed by a session on the links
between WASH and nutrition. The second day started with discussions surrounding social
protection and nutrition, with a particular focus on cash transfers in emergency situations.
This was followed by a presentation by the ENN on the nutrition sector response to the
Syria region emergency. Following a lively market place session and a structured debate,
presentations on the linkages between wasting and stunting were given. The third morning
began with three presentations from country delegates, grounding us in the reality of policy
and programming at national level. Three parallel sessions on Severe Acute Malnutrition
(SAM) followed, allowing time for detailed examination and discussion of important
technical issues. The last afternoon was used for group work on three different areas,
which participants had identified as warranting more discussion.
