Tuguegarao City – The Regional Nutrition Evaluation Team (RNET) conducted the 2022 Monitoring and Evaluation of Local Level Plan Implementation Protocol (MELLPI Pro) in Santiago City on 20 September 2022.

MELLPI Pro is the monitoring and evaluation mechanism for the implementation of the Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition at the local level. The MELLPI Pro is a local sub-system of the Philippine Plan of Action for Nutrition (PPAN) Results Framework. The results chains, activity, output, outcome, and impact are depicted in the six dimensions within a local government context. Activities and outputs in the MELLPI Pro are the local translation of the identified priority policies, services, and training expressed in the PPAN Results Framework. The outcome and impacts in the sub-system, on the other hand, refer to the conditional and behavioral changes in the specific areas/ target groups and their contribution to the national targets.

The monitoring started with a courtesy meeting with members of the Santiago City Nutrition Committee. An AVP was played to share the initiative of the city in their nutrition program.

After the courtesy meeting, RNET members proceeded with the desk review of the documents of the Santiago City CNC.

During the learning/feedback session, the evaluators expressed their feedback and recommendation to further improve the documentation and record keeping of the city.

RNET was composed of evaluators from Philippine Information Agency, and National Nutrition Council Region 02. ### John Nestor Ballad
