Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)


Despite the country's security and socio-political contexts, the highest authorities have reaffirmed their commitment to nutrition. Raising the level of institutional anchoring of nutrition is not called into question, and its operationalisation remains a priority.


The country's commitments in the field of nutrition, as well as the priorities identified for 2023, have been formulated by consensus with all the stakeholders. Each sector is committed to playing its part to achieve the objectives set.


Strengthening of the skills of the actors of the national multisectoral platform on specific themes such as the budgetary exercise, cartography and leadership in nutrition.


National expertise was favoured for actions such as the conduct of the budget monitoring exercise, as well as the development of the cartography.
