Purpose of Consultancy
CS-SUNN is an alliance of civil society organizations a part of the SUN Movement, which works together with people from governments, civil society, the United Nations, donors, businesses and researchers in a collective effort to improve nutrition. CS-SUNN was established in the second half of 2013 by eleven Non-State actors who came together to start the SUN Civil Society Alliance in Nigeria with guidance from CSN. It has since then grown in strength and number, advancing the course of improving Nigerian nutrition response as enshrined its mandate.

Over the last 5years, the alliance’s activities have been implemented as provided by its strategic plan (2017 -2022), developed in line with the Nigerian vision of ‘A country where every citizen is food and is nutrition secured’. It has steadily achieved its vision by mobilizing Non-State Actors to advocate, generate evidence, build capacity and stimulate communities to scale up nutrition in Nigeria through the strategic focus of Partnership, Advocacy, Capacity Building, Evidence generation, Institutionalization and service delivery. It has also developed the logical framework/monitoring and evaluation indicators to monitor its activities, which will all expire by the end of 2022. To this end, it is important to review the alliance’s outgoing strategy in line with the emerging context and developing realities of the time.
