Shaping the future of the SUN Movement

The draft High-Level Strategy of the SUN Movement (2016-2020) and the renewed stewardship arrangements were reviewed during the eighth meeting of the SUN Movement Lead Group on 22 September 2015. The group reaffirmed the ambition of the SUN Movement as an inclusive, multi-stakeholder, multi-sectoral Movement open to all countries committed to achieving nutrition justice and an end to malnutrition in all its forms. The SUN Global Gathering will take place from October 20-22 in Milan, Italy. This will be a key moment for all in the SUN Movement to reflect on progress to date, and determine how to realise the SUN Movement’s vision for the future – zero stunted children.
