Capacity for Nutrition (C4N), a multi donor action set up by the European Commission (EC) and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), began to manage the National Information Platforms for Nutrition Programme (NIPN) at the global level in January 2020. C4N is implemented by GIZ and is part of the programme Knowledge for Nutrition (K4N).
The EC is pleased to see continuity in the NIPN programme with the engagement of two colleagues who also worked for the Global Support Facility (GSF): Perrine Geniez and Julien Chalimbaud. They will be joined by two new team members: Laura Barrington and Ingo Neu. The C4N team will continue the work in the current four work streams:
- Country Support
- Capacity Development
- Capturing Experience & Lessons Learnt
- Global Coordination
The Commission recognizes the benefits of having the coordination of NIPN at a global level embedded in the EU’s and BMZ’s major Food and Nutrition Security programmes.
You can contact the C4N-NIPN team at NIPN-C4N@giz.de if you have any questions.
