INTRODUCTION

Nutrition in emergencies has two broad objectives: preventing deaths and protecting peoples’ right to nutrition. When disaster strikes, people who are already malnourished before the emergency are more vulnerable to illness and death. The communities affected by the emergency are also at risk of malnutrition because of lack of food or only access to inadequate food and water, poor sanitation and lack of access to health services. This training will prepare the participants in nutrition emergencies with the theme to: Prepare for emergencies to prevent hunger and malnutrition.

This course covers basic concepts of GIS under nutrition and response in emergencies, individual assessment and micronutrients. The course aims to inform the public about the importance of preparedness during emergencies, how to respond and what recovery measures can be taken to prevent death and the worsening of malnutrition of affected populations. This training will also strengthen the technical knowledge of individuals working in or aspiring to work in emergency nutrition.
