Multisectoral Collaboration in Action: Practical insights into addressing malnutrition through a multisectoral approach

22 November 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

  • The rationale for a multisectoral approach to addressing malnutrition is clear – what may be less clear is how to achieve this in practice. This N4G Side-Event, co-hosted by The Power of Nutrition and Nutrition International, aims to share practical insights on how to optimize multisectoral approaches and collaboration in large-scale nutrition programmes. A diverse panel – with expertise from government, multilateral and bilateral agencies and civil society – will discuss enabling conditions and strategies for overcoming challenges related to multisectoral partnerships; leadership and governance; financing; program implementation; and progress tracking and accountability. Panelists will also debate cross-cutting opportunities for impact in the context of the N4G Summit. The session will prompt dialogue between panelists and participants on how to make successful multisectoral nutrition approaches a reality and accelerate progress toward global nutrition goals.

Moderated by Dr Ellen Piwoz, panelists include:

• Dr Alok Ranjan, Director of Investments, The Power of Nutrition
• Dr Mandana Arabi, Vice President, Global Technical Services, Nutrition International
• Samuel Dusengiyumva, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government, Government of Rwanda
