Placement of IR photocells at a height above the animal detect rearing or jumping Z-axis. When official development assistance makes up a large proportion of the GDP, a country is highly aid dependent, with the risk of unpredictable aid and donor-driven aid programmes. This 'calorific value' is then applied to the volume of gases exchanged to compute heat. If you are having trouble finding the correct reference paper, try searching for it on PubMed: Severe public health problem. At the same time, they also require income security and protection to ensure that they will not suffer from income loss or lose their job because of pregnancy or maternity leave. This indicator is the prevalence of children with diarrhoea who received oral rehydration therapy.

These commitments are expected to be tracked on a regular basis by country self-assessment. Accessing and using data is essential for improved decision-making and coordination.
In the same year, the SUN Donor Network started to track their own spending based on a commonly agreed methodology. Building on their methodology, the SUN Movement Secretariat worked with partners to provide countries with a feasible approach to monitor their spending using national budgets as the main publicly available documents.
By , over 40 SUN countries have shared the results from their budget analysis providing insights into spending by programmes, sectors and, in some cases, sources of funding. Countries that have done the budget analysis for the first time find it easier to repeat the exercise in the subsequent years. The SUN Movement Secretariat maintains two types of finance datasets based on data received from countries.
The first dataset was initiated in and collates all cost estimates of interventions and plans shared by countries available online at CRF Planning Tool. The second dataset compiles all data shared by countries that have completed their budget analysis.
Aggregated data were shared with the Global Nutrition Report in , and and have been used for the estimation of current spending as part of the development of An Investment Framework for Nutrition World Bank Finance data is crucial to get an understanding of nutrition specific and sensitive spending across SUN countries and, where possible, to compare current spending with cost estimates.
Governments, civil society organizations, UN agencies and donors were supported with the mapping of core nutrition actions, including analysis of geographic and beneficiary coverage and delivery mechanisms. Detailed data is available for at least 20 SUN countries. UNICEF has developed a global portal called NutriDash, which provides an overview of data collected on the reach and quality of nutrition programmes. Data on food supply are regularly collected and maintained by FAO. However, it represents the core business of key partners of the SUN Movement e.
Global Nutrition Report, UN agencies, etc. Prioritised indicators have an established methodology for data collection, are standardized at international level and are available from existing data sources for the majority of SUN countries. This alignment is intended to minimize the monitoring and reporting burden. A mapping of the prioritized indicators against data sources shows that the majority of indicators are available from household surveys.
Household surveys are critical because they provide disaggregated data for almost all indicators, although there might be issues with sampling that need to be considered when analyzing age-based data. The data can be disaggregated by sex, age, wealth and education. Geographical variables can also be stratified at sub-national level, mostly at regional and provincial level.
A mapping of information systems conducted by Nutrition International in show that nationally representative surveys i. SDG 17 calls for countries to increase the availability of disaggregated data. However, most population-based surveys do not have sample data that allow going beyond provincial and regional level. Small-scale surveys and data from facilities or programmes could provide information at district and local level provided that the data quality issues are addressed.
Countries often lack data on migrant populations, minorities and other marginalized population. In addition, disaggregation by humanitarian settings at the sub-national level should be undertaken to provide relevant information.
The SUN Movement Strategy and Roadmap incorporates the diet-related Non-Communicable Diseases NCD to take into account multiple forms of malnutrition that co-exist in the same populations, households and sometimes individuals. Geographical variables can also be stratified at the sub-national level, mostly at regional and provincial level.
It is crucial to apply an equity lens to the analysis of the nutrition status in SUN Countries with a special attention to vulnerable populations and humanitarian settings.
The Bureau was therefore, put under the administrative control of the State Nutrition Officer, so that the NNMB team gets necessary help and cooperation from the local administration staff for execution of field surveys. In each of the above States, the NNMB team collects information on dietary intakes and nutritional status of population in rural areas on a representative sample, by adopting prescribed standard procedures and using accurate equipment.
The study design and Sampling procedure Survey methodology, development, pre-testing and finalization of survey instruments are worked out at Central Reference Laboratory CRL , National Institute of Nutrition, Hyderabad. In addition, re-orientation training of the staff is carried out every year. The data collected, using standardized pre-tested questionnaires, includes: Nutrition monitoring is the measurement of the changes in the nutritional status of a population or a specific group of individuals over time WHO, The paucity of reliable and comparable data from all parts of the country is a definite obstacle towards a realistic and disaggregated problem definition.
This calls for a nation-wide monitoring system. To achieve this, it is necessary to restructure and strengthen the existing National Nutrition Monitoring Bureau NNMB and to develop a mechanism for generating nationwide disaggregated data.
National Nutrition Policy, Govt. The National and State governments have been implementing a number of poverty alleviation programmes for the overall socioeconomic development of the community and several nutrition interventions to mitigate the problem of undernutrition. The Government of India's National Nutrition Policy, apart from setting nutrition goals to control and prevent malnutrition in the country, recommended that a National Nutrition Surveillance System should be developed.
