Global Technical Assistance Mechanism for Nutrition (GTAM)

ENN is the knowledge management and monitoring partner for the Global Technical Assistance Mechanism for Nutrition (GTAM), led by UNICEF and World Vision.  The GTAM, which is currently under development, aims to improve support for countries facing humanitarian situations to meet the nutrition rights and needs of those people affected. It will do this where country and regional capacities are limited by mobilising global resources to address unresolved technical issues with advice, consensus-driven guidance and specialised technical expertise. 

Download a short brief to read more about what the GTAM is, why it was developed and what it aims to do. To understand the history of how the GTAM came to be, read this Field Exchange article.

ENN is a member of the GTAM coordination team (together with UNICEF, the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC), World Vision, and the Technical Rapid Response team) that is guiding and supporting the development and implementation of the GTAM. ENN's online discussion forum en-net is one of the key resources that GTAM will link to. ENN's specific role in the GTAM is to monitor and document the development and functioning of the mechanism against it’s objectives (utilising our existing publications to share this with the wide nutrition community), and to support the development and dissemination of specific knowledge products in response to needs identified. 

A number of needs assessments activities were undertaken in 2018/19 to identify the type of technical advice requests that commonly arise from country level and to identify any gaps in technical knowledge or guidance for the GTAM to potentially address within its initial work plan. ENN, together with the GTAM Core Team, have documented the processes and findings of these assessments as summarised in this ‘Baseline Technical Needs Assessment Report'.
