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.
From 2012 to 2016, the project was 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 via two separate grants. The grants funded a consortium of agencies to build the capacity of key organisations and government bodies around the world and to consolidate and share learnings from coverage assessments. During this period, the implementing agencies included Action Against Hunger (lead agency), Concern Worldwide, Helen Keller International and International Medical Corps.
Since the completion of the second grant in early 2016, the CMN has continued to operate under the coordination and funding of Action Against Hunger UK. The support is provided on a cost-recovery basis. More information is available in this guide
