Across the SUN Movement, stakeholders from different sectors and stakeholder groups are aligning their efforts to end malnutrition. A critical pathway for this is through their contribution at key moments in a governments policy and budget cycle.

Aligning and costing nutrition actions

Aligned efforts often lead to an agreed set of results, which in the SUN Movement, is recognised as a Common Results Framework (CRF). How this is documented is unique to each country. For example, Zimbabwe has a National Nutrition Strategy (2014 – 2018), Lao PDR has a National Nutrition Strategy to 2025 and a Plan of Action (2016-2020) and Sierra Leone has a Food and Nutrition Security Policy Implementation Plan (2013-2017).

Understanding nutrition investments

Understanding nutrition investments allows governments to make choices about spending for improved nutrition which can lay the groundwork for a nations future.

Measuring nutrition investments

Having reliable data is critical for policy makers to prioritise, plan and make informed decisions on resource allocation for nutrition. The process of tracking investments brings stakeholders together to increase the efficiency of budget allocations and empower decision makers to make evidence based decisions, inform the public and allow stakeholders to engage in meaningful debate.
