The SUN Movement is developing a growing number of digital communications toolkits for members and broader stakeholders to use to communicate on key nutrition topics.
These toolkits include video statements, key messages, images, social media graphics and more.
Women and nutrition are connected in many ways. Gender inequality is both a cause and effect of malnutrition, hunger and poverty. We will not succeed in scaling up nutrition if we do not address the drivers and impacts of gender-based discrimination.
The SUN Movement has developed a digital communications toolkit on gender and nutrition, which seeks to:
- Clarify the interlinkages and interdependence between gender and nutrition.
- Amplify the initiatives that countries are carrying out to scale up gender-transformative nutrition actions
- Support countries in raising awareness on the essential links that connect nutrition, empowerment and the benefits of gender equality for all individuals, families, societies and nations
- Call on all stakeholders to integrate a gender lens as part of good nutrition, food security and the reduction of inequalities
Each year, from 1-7 August, countries, organizations and nutrition champions celebrate World Breastfeeding Week all over the world to raise awareness around the importance of breastfeeding as a fundament of good nutrition, food security and reduction of inequalities.
The SUN Movement has developed a digital communications toolkit in support of World Breastfeeding Week, which seeks to:
- Amplify countries' breastfeeding initiatives.
- Support countries in raising awareness on the importance of breastfeeding.
- Call on all stakeholders to support breastfeeding as part of good nutrition, food security and reduction of inequalities;
- Call on governments, health workers and the baby food industry to end exploitative formula milk marketing and fully implement and abide by the Breastmilk Code requirements.
Climate change is jeopardizing the food and nutrition security of people all around the world.
The most recent evidence available suggests that the number of people unable to afford a healthy diet around the world rose by 112 million to almost 3.1 billion, reflecting the impacts of rising consumer food prices during the pandemic (State of Food Security and Nutrition in the World 2022 report).
The SUN Movement has developed a digital communications toolkit on the climate-nutrition nexus, which seeks to:
- Clarify the interlinkages and interdependence between climate change and nutrition.
- Make the case for incorporating nutrition in the global climate agenda.
- Make the case for incorporating the links between nutrition and climate change into the agendas of SUN partners and stakeholders.
Following the Food Systems Summit (FSS) in December 2021, the UN-Secretary General committed to convene “a global stock-taking meeting every two years to review progress in implementing the outcomes of this process and its contributions to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda.” The first of these Food Systems Stocktaking Moments (STM) will take place in Rome, Italy from 24 to 26 July 2023.
The theme of the STM is “Sustainable Food Systems for People, Planet and Prosperity: Diverse pathways in a shared journey”. The STM focuses on three objectives:
- Convene countries and stakeholders to review progress on the commitments to action that were made during the FSS;
- Socialize the powerful role of sustainable, equitable, healthy and resilient food systems as critical SDG accelerators;
- Advocate for urgent action at scale.
