UNICEF SUPPORTS CS-SUNN’S SCALE-UP TO 11 NEW STATES: By Lilian Ajah-mong

CS-SUNN with support and funding from UNICEF has established and strengthened Nutrition   coalitions in 11 new states.

The project which was implemented from September 2017 – December, 2017 resulted in the establishment of new state chapters in Adamawa, Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Yobe, Jigawa, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Kaduna, Zamfara and Sokoto states.

The goal of the project was to map Civil Society Organizations working in the Nutrition space, build their capacities to adequately advocate for improved nutrition interventions and to establish 11 new nutrition coalitions in the North-East and West states of Nigeria.

Under the project over 220 CSOs working in both nutrition-sensitive and nutrition-specific space across these states were mapped and their capacities on nutrition advocacy for scale-up of nutrition interventions were built.

These capacities of these CSOs on effective advocacy for improved Nutrition outcomes for women and children have been built and they now better understand how to translate research to evidence for effective engagement with advocacy targets.
