SUN Movement Pooled Funds
Multi-Partner Trust Fund (2012 – 2015)
The SUN Movement Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) was established in 2012 as a catalytic instrument to support efforts in SUN Countries. The SUN Movement MPTF has enabled partners to contribute finances that facilitate the development and implementation of actions for scaling up nutrition within the parameters of the SUN Movement’s Strategy.
The SUN Movement MPTF is not designed to be a vertical nutrition fund for large scale investments in food and nutrition security, nor to replace existing funding pathways at country level- it is a fund to be used for catalytic actions to enable, initiate or develop SUN Movement activity at country or regional level, and provide appropriate global-level support, when other funding is not available.
SUN Movement Pooled Fund (2017 – 2020)
The SUN Movement Pooled Fund was formulated in 2017 as a last resort, catalytic source of grant funding to support SUN Civil Society Alliance activities at the national and subnational level. The grants will be implemented by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). The recommendations of the SUN Civil Society Network members, the SUN Movement Strategy and Roadmap (2016-2020), and the lessons learned from the SUN Movement Multi-Partner Trust Fund (MPTF) have informed the design of the grant programme.
UNOPS intends to make approximately 20 grants of up to USD 114,000 each. The funds will support the 2018 Funding Window One, which aims to “strength[en] participation by in-country non-state stakeholders (civil society, private sector actors, academics, and journalists, among others) and parliamentarians in national multi-stakeholder platforms to implement scale up nutrition plans”.
