WFP Nutrition's Learning Platform
nutx is WFP Nutrition’s learning platform, designed to share WFP’s experience, lessons learned and research on nutrition free of charge. Our learning resources include self-paced e-learning courses, interactive tests and exercises. We also share nutrition case studies, links to online resources and interesting readings.
The focus of the portal is on the nutrition topics where WFP is most engaged in. We hope this platform will be helpful to staff from national and international NGOs, Governments, university students and researchers, UN staff, as well as users from the private sector who have an interest in nutrition.
WFP&NutritionThis section provides an overview of WFP’s approach to nutrition through our key guiding policy documents. It also features e-learning modules on the fundamentals of nutrition, which were created for WFP staff, and offer an insight into what WFP understands to be the key challenges and main nutrition issues.
Fill the Nutrient Gap & Cost of the DietThe Fill the Nutrient Gap (FNG) is a tool developed by WFP that helps to identify context-specific barriers to adequate nutrient intake amongst target groups and proposes cost-effective strategies to overcome them. In this section you can find material on:
Rice fortificationThis section provides information on rice fortification. It focuses on the efforts that WFP has brought forward, along with governments, nongovernment organizations, academia and the private sector, to promote the fortification of rice worldwide. Learning material includes e-learnings, background information on rice fortification and different case studies.

This section also features an overview of WFP’s work to support South-South and Triangular Cooperation for nutrition and how it helps the organization to fight hunger.
Nutrition-sensitiveNutrition-sensitive programming addresses some of the underlying and basic determinants of nutrition. For WFP, the potential for nutrition-sensitive programming is significant. In this section you will find a combination of guidance materials for nutrition-sensitive programming; case studies and videos.
What people say about us?
No one organization can end malnutrition alone. Promoting a culture of learning and knowledge sharing is key to boost our efforts to achieve Zero Hunger: that is why WFP Nutrition created nutx
The portal is a very good initiative. Before, I was learning mainly by reading documents, but with this platform I now have access to videos and courses as well. I could also access content outside my expertise, and that really gave me an opportunity to learn.
