This resource reviews USAID Mission coordination and collaboration efforts between sectors that aim to improve nutrition in Senegal, Nepal, and Burkina. The SPRING project drew on its years-long experience supporting these missions and defined six guiding themes across design, implementation, and monitoring cycles. These include, among others: prioritizing the collaboration process itself; developing a practical strategy that is inclusive, understandable, measurable, responsive, and then holding stakeholders accountable for achieiving it; sharing learning and communicating around that strategy at all levels. In addition to providing recommendations in the USAID Mission context, the report concludes that understanding collaboration as a phased process can allow for greater standardization in operations and impact on the desired outcomes—including nutrition.
