In 2020, the NWGN collected an overview of tools and methods to support projects within the agro-food sector to become (more) nutrition sensitive.
In 2021, in follow-up of this overview, the NWGN worked on how the effects of these projects on the food and nutrition security situation can best be monitored. At the same time, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) aims to further develop its Results Framework for Food and Nutrition Security in order to harmonize reporting of results of Food and Nutrition Security projects.
To support the reporting of results of nutrition sensitive and Food and Nutrition Security projects, the NWGN has developed two documents to guide this results reporting:
- The Narrative provides more detailed guidance to MFA staff and practitioners on indicators and methodologies to assess progress against the Netherlands’ contribution to achieving selected SDG-2 targets in 2030 and related outputs and outcomes as listed in the Results Framework for Food and Nutrition. This narrative is also applicable for nutrition sensitive projects.
- The Guidelines provide detailed recommendations on indicators and methodologies to assess progress on nutrition improvement in value chain or agri-food related and Food and Nutrition security projects. These indicators are (among others) prioritized in the Results Framework for Food and Nutrition Security, of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).
Later in 2021, the NWGN will organise a series of webinars to further explain the indicators and methodologies and how to apply them in reporting of results. More information on these webinars will be shared once available.
