Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)
In 2022, the transition process of new authorities was somewhat slow and entailed an institutional reform of government, which ultimately remodelled the institutional structure. This situation caused a delay in managing the promotion, especially in the implementation of the FNS Policy.
The focal points of the UTSAN involved scaling the good practices developed in previous years to new territories, continuing with the process of developing the capacities of the new institutional staff, and continuing with the management of resources and the development of resource alignment tools in various areas of the country (EUROSAN DeL, PROOccidente, Avanzando en nutrición, among others).
This year, it has been developed with the support of the SUN Movement Secretariat by means of technical assistance given to the workshop for the development of capacities to determine the nutrition budget. Additionally, with the support of municipal associations, the University of San Carlos de Guatemala and PROGRESAN-SICA, a Diploma in Food and Nutrition Security was developed to strengthen the institutional and partnership capacities of municipalities and councils nationwide.
