There are many events throughout the year that Nutrition Cluster partners can participate in to further the work of the GNC, to build capacity, to train others, and to exchange ideas. This page provides information about activities, events and trainings, organized by the GNC-CT and/or GNC partners and relevant institutions/entities. 

Global Nutrition Cluster meetings

The GNC aims to conduct two face-to-face meetings a year: an Annual meeting and a working session. All GNC partners are invited to contribute to the planning and participate in the meetings. A Steering Committee of self-identified individuals will assist the GNC-CT and SAG in planning the meeting. The objectives of each of these meetings is as follows.

Typically the GNC annual meeting provides an opportunity for partners to review progress, share information, present technical updates and allows Task Forces to meet and further specific tasks. All partners and Nutrition Cluster Coordinators are invited to attend.

The GNC face-to-face working session aims to review or draft the Work Plan and provides time for the Task forces to meet and further specific activities. GNC partners and NCCs interested in contributing to the Work Plan discussions are welcome to attend this meeting, typically held in the first quarter of the year.

Meeting minutes for 2014 can be found on the right handside. For previous GNC meeting reports, contact the GNC-CT,

National Nutrition Cluster meetings

At a national level, active Clusters or nutrition sector working groups typically meet regularly to share information and move forward key areas of work for emergency response or preparedness. To find out if there is a Cluster or Working Group in a specific location, see ‘Where we work.
