Nutrition for Growth (N4G) commitment to 2020
The Emergency Relief Coordinator will work with colleagues to ensure that the work of the humanitarian community supports the implementation of the commitments made today as part of the Global N4G Compact. Specifically, the coordinators will make sure that nutrition is sufficiently prioritized in humanitarian emergencies and that the work of humanitarian and development agencies on nutrition is more closely aligned. In order to do this, the coordinator will commit to highlighting the importance of nutrition for growth with governments, partners, and donors and will ensure the following:
1. All humanitarian appeals contain an analysis of nutrition needs and priorities.
2. Nutrition is adequately considered and prioritized in the allocation of humanitarian funding.
3. All Humanitarian Coordinators (HCs) are fully informed of the importance of nutrition and how to support it.
4. Emergency nutrition programs are linked to national and development efforts.
