Home / SUN Supporters / SUN Movement Secretariat

The SUN Movement Secretariat is based in Geneva and is responsible for liaising with SUN Countries and ensuring the catalytic spirit of the Movement is embedded in the efforts of all actors. The Director of the SUN Movement Secretariat oversees activities in close collaboration with the SUN Movement Coordinator who is based at the same location.

The secretariat plays an important role in helping SUN Countries to track and communicate progress being made in line with the strategic objectives of the Movement. Through this, the secretariat is in a unique position to capture and share inspiring stories from across the Movement.

The secretariat also plays a facilitation role in organising regional and global workshops in collaboration with support networks that foster sharing and learning across SUN Countries.

By collecting and analysing information from SUN Countries, the secretariat is also able to inform the Movement’s stewardship on arising priorities.

The SUN Movement Secretariat is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Canada, the European Union, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway the United Kingdom and the United States. The activity plan and budget of the SUN Movement Secretariat supports the implementation of the SUN Movement Strategy and Roadmap (2016-2020).
