Foro Global sobre Seguridad Alimentaria y Nutrición (Foro FSN)

Although the deadline has passed, my quick comment, based on Rwanda's experience is that nutrition-sensitive social protection programmes are highly dynamic and require continuous and intense decision-making processes to ensure sustainability. Therefore, robust decision-support tools for such programmes are critical for successful management and decision-making.

For this reason, I am working on a proposal that seeks to  develop a decision-support tool that could be used in a nutrition-sensitive social protection programme while selecting beneficiaries and collecting food and nutrition security indicators to ensure positive impact of the programme on nutrition status of beneficiaries. I will use the Rwandan One Cow Per Poor Family Program as a case study.
