This paper investigates the perspectives of key national leaders on the coordination of a Multisectoral Action Plan for the Reduction of Chronic Undernutrition (PAMRDC) in Mozambique. The study, which engaged 21 national leaders involved in coordination groups at the national level, highlights the lack of clarity on the meaning of coordination and on the functions of the multisectoral coordination body. These issues are mainly linked to the lack a shared framework for the policy process and the complex nature of coordination itself. Authors propose that facilitating an analysis of a country’s decision-making processes could support a shared definition of the functions of a national coordination body.
