In September I had the opportunity to once again participate in the SUN (Scaling Up Nutrition) Movement global gathering in New York. There are few working in the fi eld of public health nutrition who do not know about SUN, as it is much talked about and referenced and has been key in placing nutrition high on the global development agenda. Launched in 2010, with the ambitious goal to mobilize support and accelerate the fi ght against undernutrition in the most aff ected countries, global and national stakeholders fr om all sectors now meet annually on the occasion of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in September to assess progress and share best practices for moving forward. This year’s gathering gave me many opportunities to discuss the way forward for the nutrition movement and nutrition in general with some of the leading thinkers in the sector. Nutrition has clearly been raised on the global development agenda. Although we might have the right to bask in this glory, as it has been due to much hard work by many, we now have to rapidly move to the next level. We must accelerate the implementation of what we know works.
For all devoted to nutrition.
