Implementing USAID’s Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Strategy: A Platform for Promoting Coordination and Collaboration Among Partners and Across Sectors

The 2013 Lancet nutrition series argues that in order to achieve global targets for reducing undernutrition, there needs to be a multi-sectoral approach to include scaled-up, proven nutrition-specific interventions, as well as nutrition-sensitive interventions such as from the agriculture sector. This need for cross-sector collaboration was further outlined in the publication of the USAID 2014-2025 Multi-Sectoral Nutrition Strategy, which states that “coordination along with collaborative planning and programming across sectors at national, regional, and local levels are necessary to accelerate and sustain nutrition improvements.” Participants in this webinar learned about different Mission-level approaches to promoting multi-sectoral coordination and collaboration to support nutrition outcomes and the lessons learned throughout the process.
