WaSt TIG Membership and Governance
The Wasting and Stunting Technical Interest Group (WaSt TIG) was formed to examine this relationship. The group, coordinated by ENN is made up of 42 experts in child growth, nutrition, epidemiology.
ENN’s main role since the group's formation has been to harness the skills and enthusiasm of the TIG and facilitate a number of influential project workstreams. The backbone of the expert group is the maintenance of a creative, transparent forum to scrutinise and explore the relationship between wasting and stunting, allowing it to serve the nutrition and wider humanitarian and development sectors as a hub for evidence and expert opinion which is free from organisational agendas.
A governance note outlines the mechanisms for ways of working.
