Executive summary 

The Project “Addressing gaps on multi-sectoral costing and financial tracking for nutrition”will support countries to highlight historical trends of domestic resources invested in nutrition in each country and to identify if there have been changes.  The ambition for 2015 is to support 30 SUN countries (confirmed as of 29 Feb 2015)[1]. In the following years, the country should be able to replicate the methodology without external assistance. The exercise will strengthen the ability of participating countries to critically assess and reflect on progress on financial tracking when they complete their annual SUN self-assessment reports which feeds into the annual SUN Movement Annual Progress Report and when they annually report their progress for the Global Nutrition Report (possibly including progress on N4G financial commitments).


Deliverable 1 to support the publication of country budget allocations for nutrition – three regional workshops on financial tracking: 30 SUN countries (confirmed as of 29 Feb 2015)from Africa, Asia and Latin America will receive remote support from the SUN Movement Secretariat (SMS) and the Community of Practice 1 as they undertake basic data-gathering exercises on nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive budget allocations across relevant sectors using a methodology based on nationally agreed parameters and informed by global recommendations.[2] The regional workshops will provide a platform where these countries can present, discuss and validate data in relation to national budget allocations (and spending) for nutrition. Data will be made available by end-April 2015 for inclusion in the 2015 SUN Movement Annual Report and in the Global Nutrition Report.


Deliverable 2 covering broader thematic focus (costing AND financial tracking) of CoP 1 – Asian and Latin America Workshops on costing and planning: Two workshops on costing and financial tracking prepared and conducted in Asia and Latin American with the participation of 15 countries from South Asia and South East Asia[3] and four countries from Latin America.
