District Nutrition Coordination Committee Initiative: Year 1 Lessons Learned

The UNAP’s nutrition coordination framework (provided in Annex 1) is a plan for both centralized coordination of nutrition activities at the national level and decentralized coordination through sectors and districts. The Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) Nutrition Secretariat oversees the coordination framework and the implementation of the UNAP. District Nutrition Coordination Committees (DNCCs) play an integral role at the decentralized level in ensuring nutrition activities take place within the districts. DNCCs, whose members include representatives from health, planning, education, agriculture, gender and social development, water and environment, trade and industry, and administration sectors/departments are responsible for planning, implementing, and monitoring district multi-sectoral nutrition activities.
