SUN Movement Lead Group
The SUN Movement Lead Group was instituted in 2012 and has the overall responsibility for the SUN Movement’s progress towards achieving its objectives. It aims to preserve the SUN Movement's unique country driven character and ensures the alignment of all actors with the SUN Movement’s Principles of Engagement.
Members are appointed by the UN Secretary-General and serve for a period of two and a half years (membership can be renewed) and include leaders in government, business, civil society and the United Nations’ system who are active advocates for better nutrition outcomes globally.
The Lead Group is chaired by Catherine Russell, Executive Director of UNICEF.
