The Coverage Monitoring Network (CMN) is an inter-agency initiative established in 2012 in order improve nutrition programmes through the promotion of quality coverage assessment tools, capacity building and information sharing.
The CMN offers trainings and workshops on the various coverage methods, as well as guidance on how to overcome the barriers identified. Furthermore, the CMN provides many online resources and toolkits to assist in the implementation of coverage assessments.
Since it's creation in 2012, the Coverage Monitoring Network Project has supported more than 50 organisations to design, plan and implement coverage assessments.
The project is funded by the European Commission Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (ECHO) and the Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) of USAID.
The consortium of implementing agencies include Action Against Hunger | ACF International (lead agency), Concern Worldwide, Helen Keller International and International Medical Corps. In addition Cooperazione Internazionale (COOPI), GOAL, International Rescue Committee, Médecins Sans Frontières, Save the Children, Valid International and World Vision sit on the project’s strategic board.
