CONSULTANCYTO FACILITATE A VISIONING ENGAGEMENT WORKSHOP TO DEVELOP A SUN MOVEMENT STRATEGY FOR NIGERIA
DATE: 26TH JANUARY, 2021
The Scaling Up Nutrition Movement (SUN Movement) has successfully brought together governments, United Nations agencies, businesses, donors, civil society organizations and individuals in a collective mission to uphold the right to good food and nutrition. It has also helped to illuminate the importance of nutrition in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SUN Movement continues to work with countries with the belief that Nutrition is both a maker and a marker of development. Improved nutrition is the platform for progress in health, education, employment, empowerment of women and the reduction of poverty and inequality, and can lay the foundation for peaceful, secure and stable societies. Nigeria joined the SUN Movement in 2011 and the Secretariat of the SUN Movement in Nigeria is located in the Nutrition division, Federal Ministry of Health and headed by Dr. Binyerem Ukaire.
Presently, Nigeria is implementing the SUN Movement Pooled Fund (Window ll) which is a source of funding for catalytic and innovative projects to support Multi-Sector/Stakeholder Platforms in SUN Countries to increase the effectiveness and impact of national efforts to end malnutrition in all its forms. The objective of Window II of the Pooled Fund is to strengthen linkages and joint collaboration within the Multi-sector/Stakeholder Platform at both the national and sub-national level. Grant support will improve the delivery of multi-sectoral nutrition activities that impact nutrition outcomes for nutritionally vulnerable groups including: women, girls and adolescents, and communities at the local level. The Pooled Fund grants will promote engagement of additional relevant actors in the implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder national plans for nutrition, at national and sub-national level.
The SUN Movement Nigeria has listed among others the following priorities (2019-2020): To strengthen the SUN Secretariat in country in terms of infrastructure, increase coordination of the SUN Networks and increase subnational participation in the scaling up nutrition. Following this, is the need to develop a common narrative to effectively function as a movement to scale up nutrition in the country, strengthen Multi-stakeholder Platform (MSP) to effectively coordinate and deliver results against agreed workplans.
