The Compact2025 Leadership Council and Technical Advisory Committee review progress and discuss next steps for 2017.
Members of the Compact2025 Leadership Council met in Washington, D.C. on October 6 to review Compact2025 progress and provide strategic guidance for how it can support country, regional, and global initiatives moving forward. They discussed the need for Compact2025 to be demand-driven, responding to country needs, and to use the SDGs as an overarching framework. They suggested that Compact2025 can add value by focusing on supporting the scale-up of successful programs, aligning and mainstreaming nutrition, developing better narratives about the benefits of ending hunger and undernutrition, providing guidance and tools for implementation, and helping to collect better data and design better indicators to improve accountability.
A virtual meeting of the Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) was held on October 7 to review Compact2025 progress and identify technical work needed to support country recommendations. Participants agreed that capacity strengthening is critical at all levels, from community to national government, and is the link that connects the cross-cutting recommendations from the country roundtables. Discussions also focused on the need for better data and the role that the Knowledge & Innovation Hub can play in highlighting data quality issues and gaps. TAC members noted that Compact2025 should be catalytic, identifying existing approaches that work and helping to scale these up at country and regional levels.
