Case Studies & Research
27 p.

This report embarks on an in-depth exploration of the HGSF landscape across the 15 ECOWAS countries in West Africa. It seeks to map the evolution of HGSF programs amidst various global crises, particularly since the last Landscape Analysis in 2020. With a keen focus on the progress and challenges faced by these programs, the report underscores the imperative of a robust policy framework, clear operational guidelines, and sturdy monitoring systems to enable successful implementation at scale. The analysis was structured around six key domains, namely: policy and legal frameworks, financial capacity, institutional arrangements, multisectoral coordination, community participation, procurement and supply chain processes, nutrition-sensitive programming, and data monitoring systems.
