The UNSCN Nutrition Partners' Kick-off Meeting is financially supported by Germany and France.

Purpose
:

To respond to the nutrition momentum, the UNSCN would like to create an opportunity at its next Annual Session in 2011 for a large group of nutrition partners to take stock on progress in scaling up nutrition (SUN) and further identifying ways to support the development of country capacities. At the Meeting of Nutrition Partners (the UNSCN 36th Annual Session), the reformed UNSCN will be announced and key nutrition stakeholders are expected to agree on ways to work together within the reformed UNSCN to further harmonize and bringing coherence to global nutrition.
The UNSCN seeks the advice of representatives of all key nutrition stakeholders now to assure the successful completion of the UNSCN reform, and to prepare for a substantive Nutrition Partners' Meeting (the UNSCN 36th Annual Session) next year that adds value to the scaling up nutrition (SUN) process and further builds momentum for nutrition globally.
In a kick-off meeting in Rome, representatives of nutrition stakeholders will be updated on the on-going reform of the UNSCN and will be requested to provide further insight for completing it. They will be informed about the working arrangements between UNSCN and SUN initiative for implementation support. Stakeholders will be asked to provide advice on the Meeting of Nutrition Partners (the UNSCN 36th Annual Session) taking into consideration results achieved at the political High-Level nutrition leadership meeting in Ottawa, Canada, ending 1st December 2010, and other scheduled nutrition meetings, in order to bring convergence to the planned meetings, maximize results and avoid duplications. Videoconferencing facilities should be guaranteed for participants wishing to attend from remote.
