Mali signaled its commitment to join the SUN Movement on 24 March 2011.
While most of the country’s efforts are currently focused on delivering an effective emergency response, Mali has also been working hard to establish its multi-sectoral nutrition policy – the National Policy of Nutrition, which was adopted by the government on 2 January 2013. The policy sets out a coordination process for implementation and monitoring and formation of the National Nutrition Council (CNN) and the Intersectoral Technical Committee for Nutrition (CTIN).
The country has also developed a national road map that will guide them through the process of establishing a costed multi-sectoral nutrition action plan to ensure effective implementation of the newly adopted National Policy of Nutrition. Mali hopes to finalize and adopt this action plan by June 2013.
