Monitoring Progress – SUN Monitoring Pilot Workshop
In Kigali on 26 March, the SUN Focal Point, Dr. Fidele Ngabo, Director of Maternal and Child Health at the Ministry of Health, led a pilot workshop to test tools and methodology for monitoring national level progress on scaling up nutrition.
The workshop was attended by stakeholders from across the Nutrition Technical Working Group, which is the government-led multi-stakeholder platform in Rwanda bringing together all those working on nutrition from government, civil society, development partners, business and the UN system. The workshop offered an opportunity for sectors and stakeholders to reflect on their progress over the last year, and to identify successes and areas for continued work over the next 12 months.
The group assessed their collective progress against the four processes and identified areas for focus next year. Following the meeting the results will be validated by all stakeholders and submitted to the SUN Movement Secretariat for 2014 reporting.
This workshop is part of a larger effort underway for the SUN Movement Secretariat to develop tools for countries to track progress against the four SUN processes identified in the M&E Framework. Each multi-stakeholder platform, led by the SUN Focal Point, will be asked to undertake a collective review exercise (one day workshop) to discuss progress and challenges against the various progress markers within the framework.
The SUN M&E Framework was developed in 2013 with the aim of tracking progress across the Movement against the four strategic objectives set out in the SUN Movement Strategy, 2012 – 2015. To achieve the four strategic objectives, the behaviour of countries and their supporters is being tracked against the four related SUN processes.
One more pilot workshop will be held on the 4th April 2014 in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.
