Quantify Your Net Need


  • Develop a macro-quantification plan to describe predicted commodity needs for each channel on an annual basis.
  • Develop a micro-quantification plan estimating ITN need, by channel, at lower sub-national levels (by village, at lowest level).
  • Validate the micro-quantification plan(s) with district and regional officials


  • ITN macro-quantification plan
  • ITN micro-quantification plan (for all CD channels)


  • Schedule a coordination committee meeting to conduct macro planning using NetCALC (could combine with meeting in Step 2).
  • Conduct a micro-planning exercise, as appropriate, to the context and channels. This may involve holding several sub-national micro-quantification meetings with the outputs combined nationally into a national micro-quantification plan.
