A seminar on the country joint assessment over progress of the SUN Movement

was held on May 11, 2017

Now it is universally recognized the importance of the coordinated approach in addressing the multi-sectoral issues. We can achieve the results when multiple stakeholders from different sectors and at the different levels, from the state to the local communities are working together to combine collective efforts at the country level.

Joint evaluation is precisely the measure that promotes cooperation and integration of all sectors of the Multilateral Platform on Nutrition and Food Security, and build consensus. The joint evaluation is based on four processes within the framework of four strategic objectives, as reflected in the SUN Movement Strategy.

Process 1: Combining people in one environment to perform actions

Process 2: Ensuring a coherent policy and regulatory framework

Process 3: Coordinate actions around the Common Results Framework

Process four: Tracing finances and mobilizing the resources
