Substantial progress has been made in the development of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement Strategy 3.0, informed by the Mid-term Review in 2018, the Strategic Review in 2019-2020 and the 2019 Global Gathering. Building on these, the SUN Movement Executive Committee drafted a strategy for the third phase which has been approved by the SUN Movement Lead Group during their meeting in December 2020. Currently, countries are in the lead to operationalise the strategy at a national level. The Operationalisation Group (OPS Group) has been initiated to further unpack the strategy related to questions for the whole SUN Movement under the auspices of the Lead Group.
The strategy development and operationalisation process is focused on transparency, openness and inclusiveness while also tackling the urgent need for greater pace in helping the nutrition community navigate the new COVID landscape in speaking with greater resolution, clarity, unity and authority at this critical time. This is the time when SUN is most needed, and we need to continue to show its value.
