Documentation of good practices

Working with partners, we collect examples of integrated programmes where the nutritional impact is maximized, gender is mainstreamed, and accountability measures have been effectively put into place, in order to support the adoption of proven and/or innovative practices. The knowledge gathered is also feeding into training and workshop materials. 

A “Synthesis of the good practices and lessons learnt on integrating nutrition and food security programming” is now available. This document compiles experiences from the 37 country good practices sheets collected in 2014. These sheets were filled in by organisations working mainly in the Horn of Africa and Sahel regions. The document provides very practical examples of how to improve the quality of your integrated nutrition programmes. It notably focuses on agricultural and vegetable gardening activities, cash transfer programs, and on cross-cutting issues including accountability and gender. Consult the factsheet here.

In addition, below you will find the selected good practices sheets organized by geographical area. 

You can continue to share your good practices with us by filling in this good practices sheet template.
