Multi-sector Nutrition Plan (MSNP) was developed by the Government of Nepal (GoN) in 2013 under the strategic
leadership of the National Planning Commission (NPC) in collaboration with sectoral government agencies along with development partners (DPs) and other national stakeholders. It aims to improve the nutrition status of people with a focus on adolescent girls, pregnant women, lactating mothers, infants and children by reducing all forms of malnutrition. UNICEF is providing technical and financial support to the Government of Nepal for the implementation of the MSNP since its inception. Currently, MSNP is being implemented in 308 local levels of 30 districts of 6 provinces except Bagmati. At the federal level, the Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration and Ministry of Health and Population have been coordinating to implement nutrition sensitive and specific intervention respectively in close coordination with sectoral ministries and departments. The collaboration among GoN, European Union (EU) and UNICEF has been crucial for scaling up MSNP during the first phase of Partnership for Improved Nutrition (PIN). EU has provided budgetary support to GoN to implement MSNP – II in technical support of UNICEF. UNICEF will be technically assisting in all tiers of government.
MSNP – II has envisioned MSNP scale up across the country which is further reiterated in GoN-EU financial agreement targeting to reach out 720 local levels by 2022.
