This series of briefings – entitled Scaling Up Nutrition in Practice - presents the experiences of SUN country governments, and other national stakeholders, as they scale up their efforts to ensure all people enjoy good nutrition. Each briefing in the series focuses on a theme selected by SUN country government focal points as a focus for sharing their experience during the meetings of the focal points and country teams that take place every two months by teleconference.
The first briefing focuses on ways to bring people together so that they work effectively through functioning multi-stakeholder platforms (MSPs). This is the first of four strategic processes that underpin the SUN approach.
Six stakeholders from SUN countries have contributed accounts of how MSPs are being established in their countries and how different stakeholders are working together to achieve results. Key lessons have been identified in each of the country articles. These, together with extensive information drawn from teleconference calls with SUN country government focal points and their teams, form the basis of the observations in the final article.
