The vision of SUN is a world without hunger and malnutrition, and the mission is to bring people together to support countries in reaching this goal.
The SUN Vision
The SUN Movement reflects the collective efforts of governments, organisations and individuals – working together towards the vision of ending hunger and malnutrition in all its forms so that within our lifetimes, every mother, child and family can realise their full potential and right to adequate nutritious food.
The Movement’s mission is to ensure high quality and tailored support for efforts to scale up nutrition within participating countries – in line with both national and global targets. Within the Movement, different stakeholders strive to harmonise existing strategies and programmes in ways that reflect best practices, increase investments in the most successful outcomes and ensure accountability to those they seek to serve as well as to each other.
To this end, they accelerate action for a durable end to malnutrition with a focus on the 1,000 days between a mother’s pregnancy and her child’s second birthday. Under the leadership of National SUN Government Focal Points, all stakeholders commit to plan together, align their actions and resources and take joint responsibility for scaling up both direct nutrition interventions and nutrition-sensitive strategies.
