When emergencies occur, coordination is critical to minimize any gaps and eliminate any unnecessary duplication of efforts by humanitarian organizations. The GNC-CT exists to provide support to countries before, during and after a humanitarian crisis and in fragile contexts to establish a nutritional response that saves lives. The GNC-CT is the coordination arm of the GNC and provides leadership and stewardship for coordination and functions as the secretariat for the GNC. The GNC-CT is staffed by UNICEF and housed within UNICEF Geneva. It represents the GNC partners in global fora and provides strategic leadership, global guidance and operational support to country nutrition clusters/sectors. The sum of all individuals from the PA team and the RRT make up the GNC CT.
