The Capacity Strengthening Trainings Given Since 2018

EPHI/NIPN and IFPRI organized a lot of capacity strengthening training for researchers. The aim of these training sessions were to equip researchers with possible skills that will enhance their research work and ease their tasks as a researcher. The training were organized based on the need assessment done after each training session and the possible training needs expectations initiated by the NIPN-IFPRI team. The trainings engaged several universities, NIPN stakeholders, partners, regional public health institutes and health bureaus considered more broadly.

Capacity Needs Assessment (CNA) Report

EPHI and IFPRI jointly conducted a NIPN Capacity Needs Assessment (NIPN CNA) to identify capacity needs and recommend strategies to strengthen capacities for nutrition monitoring, evaluation, policy research, data and knowledge sharing.

The main objective of this NIPN CNA was to support the identification of capacity needs and the development of a roadmap intended to strengthen national capacities for nutrition monitoring, evaluation, policy research, data and knowledge sharing, and to implement a sustainable national information platform for nutrition.

The report presents the results of capacity needs assessment conducted in the nutrition policy system and proposes a set of recommendations to strengthen national capacity for nutrition monitoring, evaluation and policy research. While the National Information Platform for Nutrition (NIPN) is the entry point for this assessment, national capacity needs and gaps related to monitoring, evaluation, policy research and knowledge management for nutrition have been considered more broadly. Read more here
