Compendium of Actions for Nutrition

The UN Network for SUN/REACH Secretariat has developed, in consultation with United Nations partner agencies, a Compendium of Actions for Nutrition (CAN), which includes matrices of potential multi-sectoral nutrition actions (both nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive actions), classified by the type of evidence available for them, as well as accompanying narratives and bibliographies. The compendium is a facilitation resource to help foster multi-sectoral dialogue at the country level, particularly on nutrition-related policy formulation and planning.
