Dear Colleagues,

I hope this message finds you well.


As you all know, having data from the most up-to-date and methodologically robust gold standard sources can often be a significant challenge for conducting nutrition sector needs analysis. Coordination teams frequently ask, "How can we effectively conduct nutrition needs analysis under these constraints?"

In this regard, there are some emerging best practices on utilising proxy indicators and expert judgment in conducting nutrition needs analysis, especially in contexts where data is scarce. To explore these approaches and  share  some practical tips, the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC), in collaboration with the IPC AMN Global Support Unit, is hosting a webinar entitled "Nutrition Needs Analysis Using Proxy Indicators and Alternative Data Sources." The session is scheduled for May 2, 2024, from 1-3 PM Geneva Time.

We warmly invite you to join us for this informative session. Please also extend this invitation to the members of your country's Nutrition Information Systems/Assessment Technical Working Group and Assessment Specialists of country cluster partners.

We look forward to your participation.

Best regards,
