Transform Nutrition are undertaking research to (a) identify individuals who have been or could be influential in contributing to policy changes that can effectively reduce undernutrition, and (b) explore the attributes and characteristics of these individuals. This informal paper Learning about Champions – Individuals Catalysing Social Change by Elise Wach and Sara Wolcott presents some of our thinking and preliminary findings to date.
The following 14 candidates have been shortlisted by our high level panel from 53 eligible nominations received. These champions reflect the broad experience and expertise that, together, will help to transform nutrition—working across countries and across sectors.
Transform Nutrition in support of the efforts of the Scaling Up Nutrition Movement have launched a new initiative to find the ‘unsung heroes’ of nutrition at national or local levels. Nominations are now closed. We are currently shortlisting with our high level panel and winners will be notified in early August.
