UNOPS invites interested and eligible applicants to join an exceptional 2022 application exercise related to the Scaling up Nutrition (SUN) Pooled Fund 2.0 extension period covering the period of July – December 2022.
The SUN Movement has successfully brought together governments, United Nations agencies, businesses, donors, civil society organizations and individuals in a collective mission in 65 countries and 4 Indian States to uphold the right to good food and nutrition. It has also helped to illuminate the importance of nutrition in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The SUN Movement continues to work with countries with the belief that Nutrition is both a maker and a marker of development. Improved nutrition is the platform for progress in health, education, employment, empowerment of women and the reduction of poverty and inequality, and can lay the foundation for peaceful, secure and stable societies.
The Pooled Fund is coherent with the SUN Movement stewardship arrangements and processes at national and global levels. In particular, the Pooled Fund will support civil society organizations and alliances through actions which reinforce in-country capabilities of all stakeholders in SUN Countries across four thematic areas:
- Continuously improve country planning to end malnutrition.
- Mobilise, advocate and communicate for impact.
- Strengthen capacity of government and non-governmental systems, multi-sectoral teams, and their individual members, for scaled-up nutrition action at all levels.
- Ensure equity, equality and non-discrimination for all, with women and girls at the centre of efforts.
- Grant support will be allocated according to the following parameters:
- Budget: The budget should not exceed USD 100,000
- Number of grants to be awarded under this Call for Proposal: 1
The application is open to Civil Society Organizations (CSO) and Civil Society Alliances (CSA) members or hosting organizations of the SUN Civil Society Network (CSN).
