NIPN-Ethiopia finalized its communication strategy aiming to bridge effective communication among the stakeholders, including researchers, decisions makers, implementers and the general public. As a key platform supporting the implementation of the national Food and Nutrition Policy, the NIPN aims to deliver evidence to decision makers in a timely manner. Successful implementation of the NIPN is built on the assumption that communication between researchers and decision makers can be challenging. To address existing communication challenges that hamper evidence-based decision making, a coordinated and comprehensive NIPN Communication Strategy was finalized in March 2020. The NIPN Communication Strategy identifies the relevant communication challenges, maps out the NIPN activities which require communication, links those activities to specific audiences, defines the key messages and proposes the different communication channels for each audience here.
