The Civil Society Network is part of Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN), a world-wide Movement to end malnutrition.
Our network is made up of civil society organisations – diverse, non-profit groups including human rights defenders, community organisations, women’s groups, small farmers, research entities, child rights organisations and more.
The network has approximately 4000 member organisations who are part of the global network or one of our country alliances or CSAs (civil society alliances).
Good nutrition – a healthy, balanced and adequate diet – is a matter of life or death and the difference between surviving and thriving. Without correct nutrition, millions of people are affected by fatal illnesses, learning difficulties, stunted growth, challenges in pregnancy and more.
The world has made progress in addressing undernutrition. But the progress has not been fast enough – malnutrition is still commonplace in many countries around the world.
The people who are affected cannot change this situation alone. Civil society organisations need to come together and use their skills, experience and influence to improve the lives of millions of malnourished people.
The SUN Civil Society Network Secretariat supports network members in three key areas – campaigning, fundraising and governance.
