Cross-cutting issues

The purpose of this forum area is to launch broader discussions of relevance to the humanitarian nutrition community and provide space for subjects that don’t fit easily into one thematic area. Topics are likely to be less technical or ‘Q&A’ in nature. It is unlikely that discussions will reach precise answers but perhaps a consensus or dichotomy of opinions, which may spur some ideas for progress and new areas of work or research. A discussion may be initiated by anyone and should have some topicality. Anyone who initiates a discussion can write at any length about a subject although the briefer and more succinct the entry the more likely it will be to encourage a response. Examples of broad discussion topics are: how the media has covered the Haiti earthquake response or whether the cluster system as part of the humanitarian reform process has improved emergency nutrition responses.
