Understanding the performance of emergency feeding programmes: Save the Children’s CMAM Report


hif-alnap-scuk-cmam-case-study-2016-coverThe Community-based Management of Acute Malnutrition (CMAM) Report is a technology-based product innovation designed to facilitate more reliable reporting of data on CMAM programming. It is part of a broader paradigm innovation aimed at changing how humanitarian actors measure the performance of acute malnutrition programming.

This case study is one of 15 undertaken by ALNAP in partnership with Elrha’s Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF), exploring the dynamics of successful innovation processes in humanitarian action. The case studies examine what good practice in humanitarian innovation looks like, what approaches and tools organisations have used to innovate in the humanitarian system, what the barriers to innovation are for individual organisations, and how they can be overcome. The case studies are synthesised in the summary report, ‘More than just luck: Innovations in humanitarian action‘.
