SUN Donor Convenors
In each SUN Country, a donor convenor regularly brings together the different donor agencies
within the country and facilitates their collaboration in achieving common nutrition objectives.
The donor convenor facilitates information sharing on national nutrition processes and events
among the donors, information and minutes sharing with the SUN Government Focal Point in the country’s government, and is the main point of contact with the global SUN Donor Network. The donor convener, though, is not expected to be the primary interlocutor between national actors and the SUN Secretariat, as this is carried out by the appropriate country authority, usually the SUN Government Focal Point for nutrition.
The SUN Donor Networks’s Donor Network Guidance Pack informing the Donor Convenor’s work can be accessed here.
Donor Convenor’s can also access the routinely updated overview about countries’ Technical Assistance (TA) requests in the internal area of the SUN Donor Network’s internal Knowledge Management webpage here (please sign up to get access)
The workload of the donor convenor (generally 10-20% of the time of one person) is often
shared between two or more people, while in some countries UN agencies instead of donor
agencies hold the role of (co-) donor convenor as they often have common objectives,
determined by the country context, with the SUN Donor Network's donor agencies. The following list provides an overview of what agencies are holding/sharing the donor convenor role in the different SUN Countries.
