Non-financial commitments
London 2013

1. Chair SUN Civil Society Network (CSN).

2. Partnership with the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), Secure Nutrition on Innovations in Nutrition Sensitive Agriculture.

Reported progress

1. We continue to host the SUN Civil Society Network Secretariat and provide the vice-chair to the steering group. Our CEO Inger Ashing is an active member of the SUN Lead Group. The SUN CSN now represents over 4,000 national, regional and international organisations and networks spanning multiple sectors, and over 60 national civil society alliances. This year, Save the Children renewed its SUN Lead Group commitments for 2022, with Save the Children calling for nutrition to be central to the hunger crisis response of governments, multilaterals and other stakeholders next to calling for a prioritized delivery of nutrition services in times of crises. We continue to work closely with the secretariat team to ensure they have sufficient funding for the delivery of the SUN CSN strategy, and to champion the role of civil society in global forums including the wider SUN movement.

2. The nutrition-sensitive agriculture competition was successfully delivered with GAIN and the World Bank in 2014. Save the Children continues to work with GAIN in a number of ways, including: collaboration through the SUN Movement (GAIN hosts the SUN Business Network): programmatic partnerships; and as contributors to the Global Nutrition Report Stakeholder Group and the Nutrition for Growth Advisory Group.
