NEEP will be hosting a learning center at the Micronutrient Forum 2016 in Cancún, Mexico, titled “Contributions of CSOs in generating evidence for nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions: What it takes to conduct an impact evaluation in local settings, challenges, and lessons learned.”

Date: 26 October 2016

Time: 12pm-2pm

Venue: Tulum 1 & 2

The primary objective of this session is to share the challenges of designing and implementing nutrition impact evaluations conducted by CSOs, going beyond the theoretical concepts to learn from the real life case studies.

The secondary objectives of this session are:

  • To provide a broad overview to the participants on what it takes to conduct a nutrition impact evaluation.
  • To hold an in-depth discussion on the key elements of nutrition impact evaluations.
  • To build participants’ capacity on how to design a nutrition impact evaluation if they are not a research institution.
