Focus on SMART in Sub-Saharan Africa: collaboration between UNICEF and SMART Initiative

Categories: News / No CommentsPosted on: September 29, 2017

Background on the project: In 2016, SMART joined forces with UNICEF’s East and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) and West and Central Africa Regional Office (WCARO) to document the implementation process of SMART surveys in Sub-Saharan Africa. This collaboration produced a report landscaping the use of national, regional and small-scale surveys using SMART methods in the regions of East & South Africa and West & Central Africa, including lessons learned on coordination mechanisms and their use in National Nutrition Information Systems. Two case studies on Tanzania and Burkina Faso were also devised, outlining the process and lessons learned from introducing and institutionalizing SMART methods for National Nutrition Surveys (NNS).

Reports are available at the bottom of this page, and soon on UNICEF Regional Offices’ websites.
