Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)


The Food Security and Nutrition Strategy and Policy have been completed with the support of several international partners, and public consultation sessions have been conducted. Approval by the Council of Ministers is expected in early 2023. Food and nutrition have been integrated into ministries’ focus, messaging and policies throughout 2022. Nutrition Education campaign was launched by the strong initiative of the first lady.


Multiple sectors and actors participated in the development of food and nutrition security policy and strategies which ensured the harmonization and alignment of the each sector's action plan around shared contry priorities.


SETSAN and other government agencies were trained on planning and budgeting, Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) and Policy and governance. More training is needed on monitoring and evaluation, strategic advocacy etc.


The National Council for Food Security and Nutrition has been established and functional. Provincial and District Councils for Food Security and Nutrition (COPSAN/CODSAN) have been created, and COPSAN is institutionalized in all 11 provinces and CODSAN in 68 districts to strengthen multi-sectoral nutrition governance from the national to local level.
