1 Updates on MSNP, SUN/REACH, Initiatives and MYCNISA Saba Mebrahtu, PhD Nutrition Section Chief UNICEF Nepal Nutrition Central Level Advocacy Grand Hotel, Soalteemode, Kalimati Kathmandu, Nepal 15 July 2012


3 Identified strengths, weaknesses, and gaps; Need for a national nutrition architecture; and A multi-sectoral approach through an agreed nutrition determinants model. NPC led High Level Nutrition and Food Security Steering Committee chaired by the Vice Chair of the NPC in place and National Nutrition and Food Security Coordination Committee; Technical working group to guide multi-sectoral nutrition review, and planning; and Nutrition and Food Secretariat being established at the NPC – with links to NNC of the MoHP and MoAD

4 Nutrition reviews by sector: Health; Agriculture, Education, Physical Planning and Works, and Local development Defined scope: Global and national evidences for ‘what works’: essential nutrition specific interventions through the Health sector & nutrition sensitive interventions through other sectors Systematic consultation: through Reference Group Meetings by sector at key stages and All Reference Group Meetings to identify the cross- sectoral linkages  Clear leadership: the NPC and actively involving health & other key sectors  Focused: the first 1,000 days of life and stunting reduction  Addressing the immediate, underlying and basic factors: women and children’s access to health and nutrition; safe water & sanitation; and education and inequity.  Emphasis on decentralized implementation: initially in selected districts ( )  Vision to gradually scale up: to all other districts by 2017 (A new approach: learning by doing)

10 Nepal Numbers of Children Affected by Chronic and Acute Under-nutrition With a current under five population of 3.5 million, some 1.61 million children are suffering from stunting – The long-term consequences of stunting, include slower cognitive and mental development, educability and economic potential cannot be overestimated. Similarly, some 585,000 children under five years of age are suffering from wasting – Consequences include heightened risk of morbidity and mortality

25 The Goal of SUN “To reduce hunger and under-nutrition and contribute to the realization of all the Millennium Development Goals, with particular emphasis on MDG 1 - halving poverty and hunger by the year 2015”.

26 The SUN Framework calls for scaling up efforts against under-nutrition in a coordinated multi-stakeholder approach – human rights focus as a basis for economic, social and human development, and on addressing food and nutrition security within that framework – abundant evidence on the impact of under- nutrition on infant and young child mortality and its largely irreversible long-term effects on intellectual, physical and social development as well as on health – recognition of a series of well-tested and low-cost interventions can protect the nutrition of vulnerable individuals and communities and benefit millions of individuals if incorporated into agriculture, social protection, health and educational programmes 1 3 June 2010 endorsed by 100+ organizations...basis for action 2

27 The SUN framework identifies two complementary ways of reducing under-nutrition: (a)direct, nutrition-specific interventions: have nutritional improvement as the primary goal and should be accessible to all individuals and their households, especially in pregnancy, in the first two years of life and at times of illness or distress (b) a multisectoral approach aimed at promoting adequate nutrition as the goal of national development policies in agriculture, food supply, social protection, WASH, health and education programmes. The focus: Increased resource mobilization through advocacy & innovative financing mechanisms Better alignment of donors' investments with national priorities Countries to identify their capacity development needs to extend nutrition interventions Plans need to be costed, including financial resources for capacity development, strengthening the delivery of services Expected benefits should be quantified

28 The SUN Movement SUN Countries: As of April 2012 the following countries have committed to Scaling up Nutrition: 1. Bangladesh, 2. Benin, 3. Burkina Faso, 4. Ethiopia, 5. Gambia, 6. Ghana, 7. Guatemala, 8. Indonesia, 9. Kyrgyz Republic, 10. Laos PDR, 11. Madagascar, 12. Malawi, 13. Mali, 14. Mauritania, 15. Mozambique, 16. Namibia, 17. Nepal, 18. Niger, 19. Nigeria 20. Peru 21. Rwanda 22. Senegal 23. Sierra Leone 24. Tanzania 25. Uganda 26. Zambia 27. Zimbabwe The Scale Up Nutrition Movement (SUN) was initiated in September 2010 – NY UN Assembly. The SUN Movement focuses on the 1000 day window of opportunity between the start of pregnancy and the child’s second birthday. Stakeholders in the Movement are increasing the resources made available to SUN countries and better aligning their financial and technical support to national nutrition priorities, momentum increased in the last months with 27 countries having made commitment to scale up nutrition. The UN Secretary General appointed a high-level, multi-stakeholder Lead Group to provide overall strategic leadership of the SUN Movement. A SUN Movement Secretariat, with budget is estimated at around $3.5million/year

31 From Mobilization to Results: Priorities for the Movement and future areas of focus for the Lead Group Focus on work to be undertaken before the next meeting of the Lead Group (in late September 2012). Take part in the development of an updated Strategy (revised Road Map) for the SUN Movement. These will include ways to ensure that results are monitored and analyzed, that advocacy around the results is intensified, and that the Lead Group continues to facilitate the growth of the Movement driven by SUN countries. Lead Group Members were invited to form sub-groups to work on six key areas: 1.Best practices, and which interventions have greatest potential to leverage results; 2.Gathering evidence of the cost-effectiveness of scaling up nutrition; 3.Tracking financing and investments in nutrition to identify key resource gaps; 4.Building a robust results and accountability framework, based on clear indicators and targets (e.g. MDGs, post-2015 goals and the World Health Assembly); 5.Articulating the importance of empowering women to be at the centre of policies and actions to Scale Up Nutrition; 6.Improved advocacy and mobilization of national and international resources for nutrition (NEPAL).

32 Nepal’s SUN Architecture The Honorable Member of the NPC, (Social Sector) acts as the chair of the National Nutrition and Food Security Coordination Committee. This coordination committee will act as a country coordination mechanism for SUN Initiative under the NPC leadership. The SUN Country Focal Point is the Secretary, Ministry of Health (MOHP). MOHP will contribute towards the technical aspects. NPC, MoHP, and MOFA took part in the UN SUN tele-conference on Thursday 14 June 2012 at 12:45 KTM time, on the thematic area: Improved advocacy and mobilization of national and international resources for nutrition. Teleconference on 5 July at 14:15 KTM time involving MoHP and NPC: Country SUN progress report – prepared through consultative process and submitted on 15 July by the MoHP. NPC, MOHP with multi-stakeholders consultations will identify personnel for The Selected Thematic Task Team, to contribute to the SUN Strategy development plus continued consultation to finalize SUN Country Progress Report required for September 2012 UN Meeting.

33 From Mobilization to Results: Priorities for the Movement and future areas of focus for the Lead Group Under the guidance of the SUN Movement Lead Group Chair, the Secretariat and its Networks will support Lead Group members as they establish the elements of a SUN Movement Strategy (revised Road Map). The Strategy will be debated and finalized in the next Lead Group meeting in New York over a half-day in the week starting 24 September. The meeting will focus on substantive issues, on action items and on measuring the impact of the Movement. Coordinated advocacy to maintain the focus on scaling up nutrition remains a priority. To help sustain this momentum, and to showcase the impact of the Movement, Canada has offered to co-host a SUN side event at the UN General Assembly in September 2012.
