WHO Nutrition Landscape Information System (NLiS)

July 9, 2014

Bringing together all existing WHO Global Nutrition Databases dynamically, as well as other existing food and nutrition-related data from partner agencies, NLIS is a web-based tool which provides nutrition and nutrition-related health and development data in the form of automated country profiles and user-defined downloadable data. Data presented in the country profiles are structured by the UNICEF conceptual framework for causes of malnutrition and intend to give an overview snapshot of a country’s nutrition, health, and development at the national level.

NLIS draws data for the country profiles from available databases. Sources include the World Health Organization (WHO), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), UN Statistics Division, UN Development Programme (UNDP), Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), the World Bank, International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), and the International Labour Organization (ILO). More recent data might be available from other sources, including in-country sources.
