Hi!

Any "good practice" on innovative fs and nut assessment worthy of replication and in the future serve as basis for instituionalization.

Thanks.

This is something that the SMART initiative is working on. There are problems with two-stage cluster sampled surveys that may need addressing. Also, the "LQAS" method is being evaluated (it has a "mixed press"). Something needs to be done about surveying in nomadic populations (ACF is working on this and looking for pilot sites). FANTA has recently published work on a new mortality estimation method that shows promise (this is the subject of another thread on this forum). For me, the next big innovation is a move to using MUAC based case-definitions for prevalence estimation.
