Planning and implementation

Home / Share & Learn / Planning and implementation

Across the SUN Movement, different stakeholders from different sectors are aligning their efforts to end malnutrition in all its forms. The SUN Movement Strategy and Roadmap (2016-2020) helps to set this path ahead and includes the area of work on continuously improving country planning and implementation to end malnutrition. The area of work strengthens country capacity across planning and implementation to monitoring and evaluation.

Aligning and costing nutrition actions

Across the SUN Movement, multi-sectoral nutrition plans, endorsed at the highest level, with national targets and costed actions that guide collective implmentation and resource allocation, are often identified as the 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 in addition to a national Plan of Action (2016-2020) and Sierra Leone has a Food and Nutrition Security Policy Implementation Plan (2013-2017).

Investing in nutrition

Regularly and transparently tracking nutrition budget allocations against multi-sectoral nutrition plans helps countries to translate political commitment into results. SUN Countries are working towards demonstrating better use of finance data through improved advocacy, planning and impact which will lead to increased resources from both domestic and external sources.
