There are many tools and resources available for designing, implementing, and evaluating nutrition programs. However, CORE Group Nutrition Working Group members did not have one place to go to when determining which nutrition-specific tools and approaches to use for programming and research.
Consequently, members expressed an interest in developing a reference guide of nutrition-specific tools and approaches, information on how and when to use them, and special considerations for their use. This reference guide meets this need. It is targeted to program designers and technical staff among CORE Group members, as well as others working in the area of nutrition globally. Its purpose is to guide nutrition actors in selecting the most appropriate design, research, implementation, and evaluation tools, based on their program objectives, context, and available resources.
