Nutrition Cluster

Our added value: The GNC Mission

The GNC exists to collectively strengthen the technical and coordination capacities for nutrition in countries, based on the needs of affected populations. This is to enable countries to forecast nutrition trends and prepare for, respond to, and recover from, shocks during humanitarian emergencies, thereby contributing to global efforts to prevent and treat malnutrition in all its forms.
