A Nutrition Commitment Audit (NCA) assesses national and state-level efforts and political will to reduce levels of undernutrition. A NCA facilitates the identification of areas where commitment and capacity to accelerate the reduction of undernutrition are strong or weak. In the longer run it can also be used as an advocacy tool for strengthening commitment and elevating nutrition in political agendas.
This summary highlights key findings from an NCA designed and applied in Nigeria in 2012 in order to examine national and sub-national level factors influencing the country’s commitment to addressing undernutrition.
