Future Plans

The Alliance will continue to inspire and engage its members to transform lives by coordinating nutrition interventions across the country and among its members. SUN Alliance’s strengths lie in its ability to be a powerful collective force of CSOs to scale up nutrition in every sense.

Through this approach, the Alliance will continue to galvanise the political commitment about the importance of nutrition and ensure that it remains a political priority. This will be accompanied with intensified advocacy over time for multi-sectoral coordination backed by increased financing.

The Alliance will also keep its momentum of accumulating knowledge sharing, tracking of results of its members, mobilizing of resources and experience building among its CSOs to scale up nutrition. This will help guide us to achieve the umbrellas’ ultimate goal of eradicating malnutrition in all its forms.

The Alliance will further continue to piggyback on the high level political commitment in eliminating malnutrition paving way for strengthened multi-sectoral action.

Conclusion

SUN Alliance applauds the government of Rwanda for recognizing the importance of investing in our children at the start of their lives; and particularly in nutrition, which not only plays a fundamental role in helping children realize their full potential, but also key to the economic growth and development. Investing in nutrition and ensuring a strong multi-sectoral coordination are one of the smartest economic decisions Rwanda can make. Good nutrition enables children to develop healthy immune systems, reducing future spending on healthcare throughout their lives. It unlocks the population’s potential.

Thus, tackling undernutrition effectively is a team effort across health, education, agriculture and, of course, finance. We can achieve more with greater coordination but we will need strong CSO leadership, nutrition champions and continued political commitment if we are to reach everyone.
