National Information Platform for Food Security and Nutrition


The National Information Platforms for Food Security and Nutrition (NIPFN) is a country-led and country-owned platform, to facilitate multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder dialogue on nutrition. NIPFN supports the use of existing information and data to develop or refine policies and programmes. In Kenya, the initiative seeks to strengthen national capacity to manage and analyse information and data from all sectors that have an influence on nutrition, such as: Ministry of Health, Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development, Ministry of Education, Ministry of Trade, investments and Industry,  Ministry of Water, Sanitation and Irrigation, Ministry of Labour and Social Protection, NDMA, UN agencies, NGOs and others. The initiative will assist in the dissemination and use of information, to better inform the strategic decisions to prevent undernutrition and its consequences.
