This tool, developed by Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN) and Oxford Policy Management, can help individuals and organisations working on supply chains for nutrition, providing best practices to ensure uniformity, consistency, and quality of the analysis. It aims to clarify key terminology and drive users to employ a common methodology when undertaking supply chain analyses for potential nutrition impact.
This tool presents a general procedure for supply chain analysis - not an exact recipe. Depending on the context, the procedure presented here and some of the described tools may not be relevant. In some cases, it may be advisable to omit or add steps or perform additional analyses depending on your objectives.
The SCAN tool consists of a manual which provides step-by-step guidance and 12 sub- tools and templates supporting the overall analysis.
