Capacity building for the media puts nutrition onto the news agenda in Ethiopia

ECSC-SUN’s efforts to raise media awareness were inspired by SUN CSN’s learning exchange programme. Last year, they were one of nine civil society alliances (CSAs) that participated in the Africa Learning Route exchange visit to Rwanda, which took place in November 2016.

One of the examples of best practice showcased during the Rwanda visit was a powerful example of the effectiveness of behaviour change communications and use of the media to channel key nutrition messages. At the end of the learning route, all participating CSAs developed Innovation Plans based on their learning and reflection on approaches could be replicated in their own countries. Inspired by their Rwanda experience, ECSC-SUN decided to focus its Innovation Plan on nutrition-related training for media professionals.


Performance contracts piloted in Tanzania

As a result of the project, the accountability and capacity of the DNSC has been increased and nutrition has been integrated into the regional development plan.

In the Kisumba ward, this had led to a nutrition framework and plan being established and 21 key stakeholders have signed resolutions to implement the plan within a short timeframe. These commitments bind the Ward Development Committee, District Council and Community Economic Empowerment and Legal Support and set out which of the three has to fulfil the agreed obligations. These resolutions are the first step to agreeing legally binding performance contracts – and the regional government has agreed that they are needed and will be established.

National buy-in for performance contracts

At a national level, PANITA hope that the Vice President of the United Republic of Tanzania, Her Excellency Samia Suluhu, will sign the performance contract covering all nutrition interventions and activities with all regional commissioners during the National Summit on Food Fortification. At the time of writing, the President’s Office Regional Administrative and Local government are finalising the contracts.
