Report launch reviews SUN Movement progress and partnerships
On 26 July 2017, an event examining SUN Movement progress and partnerships was held at the Center for Strategic & International Studies. The event included a panel of experts working in or with SUN Countries and concluded with questions and answers from the audience.
- Asma Lateef, Director, Bread for the World Institute and SUN Civil Society Network Steering Committee Member
- Denise Lionetti, Project Director, Maximizing the Quality of Scaling Up Nutrition (MQSUN) and Deputy Director, Maternal and Child Health and Nutrition Program, PATH
- Carolyn Hart, Project Director, SPRING Project & Vice President, JSI
The SUN Movement has helped secretariats begin to track progress on nutrition and nutrition action plans and now they have started to gauge how much money is going to nutrition. We think that SUN can really be credited with getting this moving.
New report launch
The new report, “What can the United States learn from the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) movement? Examining country leadership in Zambia, Kenya, and Bangladesh” draws from SUN progress observed in three countries.
It’s analysis focuses on reducing the prevalence of stunting in countries targeted by the U.S. government global food and nutrition security initiative, Feed the Future. The report ultimately furnishes recommendations for Feed the Future to improve its engagement with country-level nutrition policies and aligned resources.
