This report describes the scope and range of FANTA’s multisectoral nutrition programming activities, as well as the tools the Project developed to promote country-led, evidence-based, scalable, multisectoral approaches to improved nutrition. Drawing from experiences in Guatemala, Uganda, Tanzania, DRC, Ivory Coast, the report illustrates common challenges for multisectoral nutrition planning, including weak coordination among sectors, gaps in human and financial resources, lack of data, and lack of inclusion of nutrition in development policies and programs. Among the lessons learned, the report highlights the relevance of nutrition advocacy efforts, training delivered to government technical staff, committees and forums for strengthening national collaboration, and the importance of preparing multisectoral national plans.
