The Global Nutrition Monitoring Framework (https://www.who.int/publications/i/item/9789241513609) is an operational guidance document aiming helping Member States to report on the GNMF indicators to monitor progress in meeting the nutrition targets for 2025. The document outlines the key aspects of how to operationalize the GNMF indicators at national level (including wasting). For all indicators, step-by-step description has been provided on the indicator definition, method of estimation, data availability, data sources, data collection frequency, and guidance on data collection and reporting. The operational guidance is intended to contribute to harmonized reporting by Member States on the GNMF indicators
