Aimed at converging various nutrition-related schemes, the Government of India’s National Nutrition Mission (NNM) brought under one framework key interventions, indicators, and targets being monitored and achieved by relevant line departments implementing these schemes. For this, the convergence committees were constituted to facilitate the operationalisation of this framework.
We supported the Convergence Committees in two districts of Bihar – Sitamarhi and Gaya, by building their capacity to provide an unparalleled opportunity to facilitate a lasting and shared understanding amongst key ministries and stakeholders on the importance of nutrition and its centrality in determining overall human development.
- Identification of gaps and potential interventions to address these gaps
- Supporting the development, implementation and monitoring of concrete action plans by the convergence committees at different levels
- Defining multi-sector nutrition convergence actions and assisting the committees in implementation and monitoring of the action plans.
