Fixed obligation grants (FOGs) are used to support specific development activities where both the grant donor and recipient understand the costs required to meet certain deliverables and carry out specific activities. IMA provides FOGs to regional and district government to enable the government to plan its nutrition activities and practise allocating these funds. Using FOGs promotes ownership and buy-in from the government at all levels and increases the likelihood that the government will own and sustain stunting reduction activities following the project’s end. This document describes strategies ASTUTE has used to successfully implement FOGs, as well as lessons learnt and recommendations.
