The success factors of partnerships

Illustration of good collaboration between the health sector and agriculture, with the support of GIZ. Training / raising awareness of local elected officials to the consideration of nutrition in municipal development plans.

Progress towards SUN 3.0 Strategic Objectives (SO)


The presidency of the multisectoral nutrition coordination taskforce, after the 2020 ministerial reform, is now held by its first vice-president (Secretary General of the Ministry in charge of Health). Although the advocacy strategy has been developed and validated, no team has yet been put in place to handle the subject. With the technical and financial support of UNICEF, a study on the investment case has been carried out, and will be followed by an advocacy strategy.


The various sectors have the willingness to implement the interventions, but find themselves blocked by insufficient funding, or the prioritisation of the interventions for which funding has been acquired to ensure the alignment of activities. With the support of GIZ, there is good collaboration between the health and agriculture sectors for the inclusion of nutrition in municipal development plans.


The country has trained agricultural actors in sensible nutrition and nutrition-sensitive agricultural indicators, and local elected officials and mayors in nutrition and development. Under the aegis of the Ministry of Agriculture, the training of women leaders of organised groups on the processing of local foods with high nutritional value has been integrated into the food systems resilience programme.


In addition to the Multisectoral Taskforce for Nutrition Enhancement, a presidency-level entity (African Leaders Nutrition Initiative) initiates youth development programmes and projects, including in the area of nutrition. The presidency of the multisectoral nutrition coordination taskforce, after the 2020 ministerial reform, is now held by its first vice-president (Secretary General of the Ministry of Health).
