When emergencies occur, coordination is critical to minimize any gaps and eliminate any unnecessary duplication of efforts by humanitarian organizations. The GNC is first and foremost a coordination mechanism. The Global Nutrition Cluster (GNC) was established in 2006 as part of the Humanitarian Reform process, which aimed to improve the effectiveness of the humanitarian response by ensuring greater predictability, accountability and partnership. The GNC’s core purpose is to enable country coordination mechanisms to achieve timely, quality, and appropriate nutrition response to emergencies. The GNC supports countries in their strategic decision-making, planning and strategy development, capacity building on coordination and information management/knowledge management, advocacy, monitoring and reporting, and contingency planning/preparedness.
