SUN Movement Executive Committee Call to Action

Following their retreat in January 2018, the SUN Movement Executive Committee has issued a Call to Action for all stakeholders to strengthen their contributions and rally behind the Movement’s vision of eradicating all forms of malnutrition by 2030. Noting the progress to date and the opportunities and challenges ahead, the Executive Committee urges the SUN Movement to strengthen the focus on investment, implementation and results. The Executive Committee identified a number of issues to be addressed, and is calling on specific stakeholder groups to take action.

About the SUN Movement Ethical Framework

The SUN Movement Ethical Framework is for individuals in the Movement to use as a guide to ethical behaviour. The Ethical Framework ensures that space is provided for aspects of transparency and accountability of the Movement’s stewardship arrangements and support system, so that they can be easily assessed by those inside and outside of the Movement.

Membership process

The initial process for selecting members of the Executive Committee was proposed by the SUN Networks and the SUN Movement Coordinator for a period of two years. The group represented the diversity of stakeholders in the Movement and had a gender and geographical balance. At the time, it consisted of 16 people, with 10 drawn from the SUN Networks and 6 drawn from SUN Government Focal Points. New change management procedures were endorsed by the SUN Movement Executive Committee in November 2016 to support the committee’s Chair and Co-chair in managing changes in consultation with the SUN Movement Coordinator. In view of conclusion of the first two-year membership term, the Executive Committee adopted in October 2017 procedures for self-assessment and rotation of membership.

The Chair and Co-Chair designations are decided by the SUN Movement Executive Committee as a whole. It is up to individuals to accept their nominations.
