"Nourishing people and planet together"

Kathmandu (Nepal) 4-7 November 2019

The SUN Global Gathering brings together all SUN Government Focal Points and representatives of their partners from civil society, donor, United Nations agencies, private sector partners, academia, media, parliamentarians and others. It is the flagship event of the SUN Movement and an important moment where members take stock of progress and challenges, share their innovations and learn what is helping to reduce malnutrition across all SUN Countries. It is a moment for every actor to be energised and encouraged through sharing, learning and finding ways to take their fight against malnutrition to the next level.

As in previous years, the SUN Global Gathering will be divided into several sections including plenary sessions, workshops, and a marketplace designed to showcase country experiences in scaling up nutrition. This year, we are also planning plenty of space (and support) where participants will have the opportunity to share their unique experiences and perspectives.

“ I would like to congratulate the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal on being selected as the next host of the SUNGG19 ”

Gerda Verburg, UN Assistant Secretary-General and SUN Movement Coordinator

“ We express our strong commitment to make 2019 SUN Global Gathering highly successful ”
