Dear readers

Since its inception over ten years ago, the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) has progressed from its early focus on the development of technical tools and materials and filling research gaps to a much greater emphasis on strengthening country coordination and providing surge support to secure appropriate and high-quality nutrition programming in emergency contexts.

Currently, the level of attention afforded to linear growth below international standards (stunting) in humanitarian and protracted emergency contexts is below what is needed, given the very high burden and prevalence of stunting in these contexts. A good deal of the policy, research and programming focus is directed towards the treatment of wasting in order to prevent excess mortality among children under five years of age.

Introduction

A number of recent reviews of crises, including Syria (ENN 2014), Lebanon and the Ukraine (GNC-ENN 2015) have raised questions about the humanitarian nutrition response in contexts where levels of wasting are not elevated or high in terms of emergency thresholds, but where stunting is prevalent.

Summary

This case study documents how the nutrition information systems in South Sudan, once weak and unreliable, have been transformed into a well-developed system supported by government, donors and Nutrition Cluster (NC) partners. It highlights how increased technical capacity in nutrition and information management within the Cluster Lead Agency (UNICEF) has allowed for the NC to focus on coordination. Integrating nutrition information management capacity into Ministry of Health (MoH) systems remains a work in progress.

This case study is one of six case studies produced through a year-long collaboration in 2015 between ENN and the Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) to capture and disseminate knowledge aboutthe Nutrition Cluster experiences of responding to Level 2 and Level 3 emergencies. They each provide very rich insights into the achievements of the cluster approach and the challenges of working in complex environments. The findings and recommendations documented in this case study are those of the authors.
