Re-advertised – RFP: Research Consultant Scoping Study on Nutrition in Indonesia

Scope of Work

Scoping Study on Nutrition in Indonesia

Background

The
2015 Global Nutrition report makes it clear that global progress to reduce
malnutrition has been slow and uneven. Nearly half of all countries face
multiple serious burdens of malnutrition such as poor child growth,
micronutrient deficiency, and adult overweight and obesity. No country is on
track to achieve the global nutrition targets established by the World Health
Assembly. Some countries, however, have made notable progress and the Report
seeks to understand the factors that contributed to improvements. Poor nutrition in the first 1,000 days of children’s
lives can have irreversible consequences such as stunting.

A National Plan for Food and Nutrition
(NPFN) (2011-2015) is in place. The plan is in line with the National Midterm Development
Plan (2010-2014). A national action plan on nutrition is currently being
developed to ensure alignment with the 2015 – 2019 National Midterm Development
Plan.

 

Considering current situation of
nutrition problem in Indonesia, Save the Children wants to organize a policy
research in order to better understand its root causes. In order to achieve
this purpose, Save the Children is seeking a consultant to conduct a scoping
study on nutrition during the first 1,000 days, focusing on policies and their
implementation both at national and sub national level.

scoping study will focus on nutrition during the first 1,000 days and

Indonesia to address the drivers of malnutrition and identify key
stakeholders involved in the policy development process

–       To understand to what extent
are these nutrition-sensitive and nutrition-specific policies developed into
programming and implemented on the ground (looking from an equity lens)? Where are the gaps? Which
groups are being left behind? Consider both a. national level and b.
sub-national level.

–       To understand the types of
nutrition focused campaign that has existed in Indonesia during the past 3
years and who are involved in these campaigns – both at national level and sub
national level

–      
To make advocacy 
and campaign recommendations to
address the drivers of malnutrition in Indonesia
