Annual report 2020

January to December 2020

Current Challenges
  • Underfunding - 40% of HRP requirements received resulted in low coverage of nutrition interventions;
  • Access challenges due to insecurity and movement restrictions (including lockdowns and ghost town) that affected the implementation of nutrition activities;
  • COVID-19 pandemic interrupted planned nutrition activities including the postponement of Rapid SMART survey;
  • No clear data on the current nutrition situation - hence nutrition needs are not well known which in turns affects advocacy and fundraising;
  • Limited capacity of partners (Government and NGOs) on nutrition response in emergencies.
