Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)

SO.1

Training provided to the Intersectoral Committee for the Prevention and Reduction of Chronic Malnutrition in Children made it possible to align the priorities and responsibilities of the institutions in charge of providing the prioritised basic package for pregnant women and children under two years of age.

SO.2

The Intersectoral Strategic Plan for the Prevention and Reduction of Chronic Malnutrition in Children remains in force, on which all the responsible institutions are working to achieve the objectives. In 2023, the percentage of compliance with the 2022 goals was evaluated, and for next year the institutional and territorial indicators and goals have been established to be monitored periodically.

SO.3

To improve governance, progress has been made in terms of institutionality, funding, information systems, and territorial and multi-stakeholder coordination.

SO.4

UN-Nutrition monitors the strategy, holding regular meetings to align work, measure progress, and guarantee accountability. In the same way, work has been done with international cooperation organisations in order to harness synergies and not duplicate actions. In 2022, Ecuador actively participated in spaces for the exchange of positive experiences with SUN Movement member countries, as well as at the Regional Meeting.
