Strengthening the capacity of SUN countries with a learning route in Peru

  |   SUN Civil Society Network, SUN Lead Group and Secretariat

From 8 to 14 September 2014, participants from the SUN countries of Tanzania, Senegal, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Laos, El Salvador and Guatemala were hosted by the government of Peru as part of pilot ‘Learning Route’ programme. The countries met to learn more about the strategies and mechanisms put in place by Peru to fight child malnutrition and explore ways that the Peruvian experience may be relevant to their countries.  Implemented by the PROCASUR Corporation, the route was an active collaboration between Peru’s Ministry of Development and Social Inclusion (MIDIS), the  participants of visiting countries and the SUN Movement Secretariat as part of a two part pilot programme taking place this year.

The seven day programme in Peru included presentations, workshop sessions and field visits. All activities were focused around two thematic areas:

  • The institutional coordination required to design and articulate social policies to address chronic child malnutrition
  • Implementation of a financial mechanism that links budget allocation systems with service delivery goals and outcomes

SUN country teams included actors from government, civil society and the private sector who contribute to national multi-stakeholder platforms for nutrition. Some participants have shared their experience through blogs including:

The Learning Route in Peru is part of a pilot programme that aims to provide SUN countries with a face-to-face learning experience, to increase multi-stakeholder access to innovative tools and to strengthen relationships between countries to increase their capacity for scaling up nutrition. The programme is supported with SUN Movement MPTF funding. The first route was held in Senegal in April this year.
