Bring stakeholders together
The National Food and Nutrition Security Policy was jointly updated and the systematization of the process is a good practice in the country led by the authorities responsible for the SESAN.
Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)
Updates to the National Food and Nutrition Security Policy started in 2021 by means of consultations with more than 4,000 stakeholders from different sectors in the country's 22 departments, making it possible to have a tool based on a process of dialogue and consensus in order to promote change in the main factors causing food and nutrition insecurity in the country. The National Food and Nutrition Security Policy focuses on providing proposals for specific solutions and turning the aspirations of the public administrations and sectors represented in the National Food and Nutrition Security System into actions.
The country's common results framework is the Grand National Crusade for Nutrition (GCNN). All sectors of the Multi-Stakeholder Platform have joined this strategy and supported the achievement of its results, which are reflected in the GCNN baseline.
The United Nations System and donors in the country have provided support to bolster institutional capacities related to monitoring and evaluation, gap analysis, and information systems, among other issues, so that public institutions can respond to the issue of malnutrition in the country.
The country has a Food and Nutrition Security (FNS) Governance strategy, which is reflected in departmental, municipal and community committees. Likewise, the National Council for Food and Nutrition Security has a space to present the material and financial progress of the institutions with budgets linked to FNS in order to foster transparency in accountability.
