Fill the Nutrient Gap: Identifying Context-Specific Solutions to Improve Nutrition Across Systems

On September 19, the Word Food Programme hosted a webinar with SecureNutrition as part of the UN Network for SUN webinar series. During the webinar, they introduced the Fill the Nutrient Gap (FNG) tool, which is aimed at stakeholders who are engaged in designing multisectoral strategies for nutrition at the country level. The FNG tool leverages context-specific secondary sources of data and information on factors that directly or indirectly impact whether people can access and consume nutritious foods, and, ultimately, whether they meet recommended nutrient intakes. The FNG presents data on the current situation which country stakeholders can use to formulate recommendations for policies and programming in agriculture, food systems, health, social protection, education, and other sectors which can contribute to improving nutrition.
