Nutrition (Last updated on: 07 Jul 2020)
The Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) was established in 2006 as part of the Humanitarian Reform process, which aimed to improve the effectiveness of humanitarian response programmes by ensuring greater predictability, accountability and partnership.
The vision of the GNC is to safeguard and improve the nutritional status of emergency-affected populations by ensuring an appropriate response that is predictable, timely and effective and at scale.
The GNC collective exists to safeguard and improve the nutritional status of crisis-affected populations by enabling coordination mechanisms to achieve timely, quality, and appropriate nutrition response to effectively and accountably meet the needs of people affected by humanitarian crises.
The GNC promotes and supports open communication among GNC partners and NCC at all times. GNC partners, NCC/IMO, RRT, SAG and the GNC-CT communicate primarily through regular phone calls, semi-annual meetings and a bi-weekly bulletin. All calls and meetings are documented and minutes and reports from these are available directly from the GNC-CT.
