Kathmandu, 3 June 2022 – Under the leadership of the National Planning Commission, Nepal has officially launched its Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Business Network strategy. 

The launch of this new strategy in May comes at a critical time for Nepal: 11 years after joining the SUN Movement and three years after hosting the SUN Movement Global Gathering in Kathmandu.

The SUN Business Network mobilizes the private sector, and aims to expand the role of businesses to improve nutrition for all through action, investment and innovation. 

National SUN Business Networks have started to galvanize support across industries and sectors. They are actively implementing strategies that mobilize the private sector to address the multiple burdens of malnutrition at the local, regional and national levels. These efforts continue to strengthen the SUN Movement’s approach – as a multistakeholder, multi-sectoral movement for nutrition impact and results.

The launch event in Kathmandu sought to advance the development of Nepal’s national SUN Business Network, with the objective of improving and strengthening the private sector’s contribution towards the nutrition agenda at the country level.

The presentations and discussions that took place during the event specifically focused around the components of the strategy and its implementation. 

The development of the strategy was supported by the World Food Programme, and the event was attended by key stakeholders from Nepal’s National Planning Commission, the private sector, United Nations agencies, civil society organizations, donors and academia.
