What is a Common Results Framework?
Multi-sectoral nutrition plans endorsed at the highest level, guide collective implementation and resource allocation. Across the SUN Movement, these are often identified as the Common Results Framework (CRF). How this is documented is unique to each country and many include national targets and include actions which have been costed.
Regardless of where or how it manifests itself, each step and interaction in the process of negotiating a CRF add value to the national policy and budget cycle. This collaborative and comprehensive analysis allows all stakeholders to harness their collective ambition and capacities to achieve scaled up results. A well developed CRF can be a powerful vehicle for national stakeholders to translate policy into action and results and to ensure accountability to each other and to those most affected by malnutrition.
