PROJECT BACKGROUND AND SCOPE OF WORK
1. ABOUT GAIN
The Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) is a Swiss-based foundation launched at the UN in 2002 to tackle the human suffering caused by malnutrition. Working with both governments and businesses, we aim to transform food systems so that they deliver more nutritious food to all people.
GAIN’s work to improve the consumption of safe and nutritious food is based on three interlinked strategic objectives:
1. To improve the demand for safe, nutritious foods.
2. To increase the availability of nutritious foods and enhance the nutritional value of foods; and
3. To strengthen the enabling environment to improve the consumption of safe, nutritious foods.
We build alliances between governments, local and global businesses, and civil society to deliver sustainable improvements at scale. We are part of a global network of partners working together to create sustainable solutions to malnutrition. Through alliances, we provide technical, financial and policy support to key participants in the food system. We use specific learning, evidence of impact, and results of projects and programmes to shape and influence the actions of others
