Independent Steering Committee

The Independent Steering Committee (ISC) has replaced Phase I's Independent Advisory Committee (IAC), enabling it to take on a more active governance role. The ISC not only provides advice on strategic direction and priority-setting for the overall program, but also undertakes a formal review and approval of A4NH’s annual plan of work and budget, plans for program evaluations, and strategies. The ISC reports to the IFPRI Board annually with recommendations and proposed management responses.
