The Strategic Advisory Group (SAG), provides strategic advice to the GNC to guide direction of its actions, thus holistically supporting the implementation of the GNC Strategy.

The SAG provides strategic guidance and ensures that GNC partners benefit from strategies that are consistent with the public interest of the Nutrition Cluster members and the vulnerable populations we serve. In providing strategic guidance, the SAG examines issues and solutions through different lenses so decisions are made based on the best available information and in the best interests of the affected populations served by the GNC and the wider GNC partnership.

Members of the SAG are exemplars of the GNC and its humanitarian values, acting with integrity, fairness and in the interest of affected populations. They maintain the GNC’s focus on building inclusion, enrichment and trust for the benefit of people, stakeholders and the GNC partnership. 

The SAG is composed of 12 members, and includes the GNC Global Cluster Coordinator, the Technical Alliance co-lead, three NGO partners, four UN agencies (UNICEF, WHO, WFP and UNHCR) and two Nutrition Cluster Coordinators. For more details on the responsibility of SAG members, please view the terms of reference of the GNC SAG, available here.

In addition, the SAG:

  • Commits to fulfilling the activities outlined in the GNC annual meeting;
  • Supports the GNC by monitoring the progress of the GNC Work Plan;
  • Participates in online monthly meetings on the second Wednesday of each month with needs based ad-hoc meetings scheduled when necessary.
