Toolkit for addressing nutrition in emergency situations

The toolkit is intended as an easy-to-use field guide that outlines the key basic interventions for nutritional support to individuals and groups during an emergency situation. In most emergencies, we focus on two key aspects: risk assessment and risk management. This toolkit focuses on risk management. What it takes to ensure that emergency needs are met with tools and approaches representing the current thinking in nutrition. The toolkit does not provide information on measuring nutritional status, rapid assessments, needs assessments, early warning or evaluating interventions.
