The Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement Secretariat plays a coordination and facilitative role for the SUN Movement in order to improve nutrition outcomes in developing countries, particularly for women and children under five, in the 56 member countries and states. Project activities include: (1) monitoring and tracking country level progress;(2) linking the various member networks of the SUN Movement with country requests for support; (3) mobilizing resources to address malnutrition; and (4) ensuring the activities of the networks, including United Nations, Business, and Civil Society networks, are aligned with the Movement. Building on the achievements of the first two phases of funding (2012 and 2014), this initiative supports the operationalization of the new SUN movement strategy for 2016-2020 including transition of the Movement to its new phase. This initiative supports the development of roadmaps for each member network and ensures continuous support to the SUN countries and networks to achieve better results.
