Exploring multi-sector programming at the sub-national level in Kenya, Nepal and Senegal

  |   SUN Country Network, SUN in Practice

ENN has published a series of case studies on multi-sector nutrition programming at the sub-national level as part of our Knowledge Management (KM) work under the DFID funded TAN Programme (supporting learning within the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement). ENN’s primary objective for this work was to construct ‘case studies’ with detailed descriptions at the sub-national and implementation levels.

The document that accompanies three case studies -Senegal, Nepal and Kenya- carried out by ENN to document nutrition-sensitive and multi-sector programme experiences in several countries, with a focus on the sub-national level. It is done as part of ENN’s work under the Technical Assistance for Nutrition (TAN) programme, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) to support the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement in its second phase (2016-2020).

For practitioners and policymakers working in nutrition, there is limited evidence and documentation available on how nutrition-sensitive and multi-sectoral programmes are being operationalised, and how these interact with existing institutional architecture and structures at the sub-national level.  Documentation has often centred around policies, strategies and frameworks nationally and guidance available is still fairly generic and “top down”.

This work comprises three country case studies from selected “high achieving” SUN countries with a strong track record in championing and improving undernutrition – Kenya, Nepal and Senegal. These country pieces are accompanied by a synthesis document that draws out some of the key lessons from these case studies. The three country pieces are based on fieldwork and interviews conducted by ENN’s Regional KM Specialist team in late 2017.
