The GNC Technical Alliance supports three pillars of work:
Provide technical advice - provide feedback to questions from individuals/agencies working in countries experiencing emergencies within a short timeframe primarily where relevant normative guidance exists and is available.
Facilitate consensus driven guidance - identify urgent needs for interim operational guidance and facilitate the process of developing such guidance, based on consensus amongst experts, enabling a timely response to nutrition-related emergencies.
Provide specialized technical expertise - support provision of specific technical expertise required by a country to deliver results for nutrition. Technical expertise support may be in the form of deployment of human resources, remote support of technical staff or capacity building.
The GNC Technical Alliance has a leadership team that includes UNICEF, World Vision, the Emergency Nutrition Network, the Global Nutrition Cluster Coordination Team, and International Medical Corps. The core team works with global nutrition partners and existing or new Global Thematic Working Groups to respond to countries’ technical needs.
