1. Topic:Review Of The Piloted Community Based Local Production Of Complementary Food And Develops A Strategy For Scaling Up The Intervention- Ref (RFP-ETH-9100876)

2. Background.
Malnutrition is one of the main public health problems of children and women in Ethiopia. Acute and Chronic Malnutrition are the most prevalent with half of Ethiopian children chronically malnourished and one in ten wasted (44%, 28% and 10% of children under five are stunted, underweight and wasted respectively) [1].

While there have been some improvements in the indicators of malnutrition among children under five, the country needs to accelerate in order to o improve the rate of progress to achieve the target 2 of MDG 1, a reduction of underweight among children under five. Cognizant of the magnitude, causes and consequences of malnutrition and lessons learned from previous and current efforts to address malnutrition, the government, in cooperation with partners, has developed the National Nutrition Strategy (NNS) and its program, the National Nutrition Program (NNP) (2008-2012/13), to reduce the burden of malnutrition and its consequences.

In Ethiopia, inappropriate infant and young child feeding (IYCF) practices are among the key determinants of malnutrition. UNICEF and partners are supporting the National Nutrition Programme to accelerate the improvement of Infant and Young Child Feeding practices for young children. One of the major interventions is to support the Community-Based Complementary Food Production (C-CFP) in rural, food insecure areas.

Organize a meeting to discuss with AA university and four regional universities engaged in the piloting of the CF to document the lesson learned from the pilot study and identify key operational challenges and constrains. Undertake travel to the four districts (8 kebelles) in the four regions and asses the pilot project and document the key lessons from the visits
