- The Nutrition Adviser is the technical lead in this emergency.
- The Nutrition Adviser will participate in the Nutrition working group, lead on sectoral consultation and representation, review of current nutrition programming in Nigeria, guiding assessment design, recruitment of initial staff, training of assessment teams and the finalisation of approach for the Nigerian humanitarian response.
- The Nutrition Advisor will lead sectoral input into individual proposals and the development of the humanitarian response strategy. They will define what inputs will be needed, design the training and management processes for the response. As resources become available, the nutrition advisor will lead on programme start-up, staff recruitment training and support to nutrition manager and staff as they come on line. The Nutrition advisor will then revert to the more usual TA role - providing a monitoring and mentoring role to ensure the quality of the nutrition components of the response.
