SUN Movement Strategy 3.0
The Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Strategy 2021–2025 (SUN 3.0) prioritizes country leadership and focuses on supporting systemic change at the country level. It seeks to capture the ambition of SUN Countries and guide the work of all actors at all levels – national and subnational, regional and global – aligning concerted action behind and responding to commonly agreed national priorities set out by governments in SUN Countries. As part of these efforts, SUN 3.0 aims to contribute towards achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
SUN 3.0 is committed to fundamental, non-negotiable aspects of effective nutrition action, including equity and the principle of leaving no one behind. For its third phase, the SUN Movement is driving forward gender equality and enshrining youth leadership across the SUN Movement. SUN 3.0 is designed to strengthen partnerships to achieve greater impact on nutrition through food systems, health systems, social protection systems, actions by the private sector and humanitarian and development actors, and through education, water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) and climate change adaptation.
The SUN 3.0 Strategy sets out four strategic objectives as reflected in the SUN 3.0 strategy framework (theory of change):
- Strengthen and sustain strong policy and advocacy environments at the subnational, national, regional and global levels to position nutrition outcomes as a key maker and marker of sustainable development.
- Develop and align shared country priorities for action.
- Build and strengthen country capacity to develop, prioritize, finance, implement and track country actions through strengthened technical assistance and knowledge management.
- Ensure governance of SUN that promotes country leadership and responsibilities of government, aligns the resources of all Movement stakeholders behind country priorities, strengthens mutual accountability between Movement stakeholders and to those most at risk of malnutrition, with robust mechanisms to encourage and ensure such promotion, alignment and mutual accountability is realised. In fragile and conflict-affected states, where the government may be unwilling or unable to lead, SUN partners shall work together in collaboration with humanitarian actors and include them in any multi-stakeholder platforms.
