To further strengthen understanding about multi-sectoral nutrition to a range of audiences, USAID Advancing Nutrition designed several courses and led communities of practice to facilitate learning and experience exchange.

Through the Nutrition-Sensitive Agriculture Design Guide and Community of Practice, we provided a structure for implementing partners to conduct a strategic planning session, focused on reviewing program activities and making them more nutrition-sensitive.

Additionally, we worked closely with USAID to develop a foundational course in nutrition, aimed at increasing nutrition literacy at the agency.

Through our regional work in East Africa, we worked closely with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development, to design a regional community of practice focused on nutrition surveillance. The Learning Network for Nutrition Surveillance, known as LeNNS, included policy makers, academics, implementers and funders from across eight countries in the region. We also documented opportunities and challenges from LeNNS’ first year of implementation in briefs about our efforts to ensure its sustainability and determine its structure.
