Civil Society, Government, the United Nations and Donor Community joined together in Hargeisa, Somaliland on the 16th January 2019 to launch the Civil Society Alliance for SUN in Somaliland.

ANPPCANSOM, who is the current chair and the hosting organization, conducted a comprehensive mapping of the civil society organizations involved in the nutrition sensitive and nutrition specific programs in Somaliland in October 2018 leading to the establishment of Somaliland Civil Society Network for SUN. Over 15 civil society organizations pledged to join the movement to eradicate malnutrition in Somaliland.

The Government of Somaliland is committed to Global SUN movement, demonstrating their commitment to deliver sustainable solutions in order to address nutrition problems in Somaliland.

As individual organizations serving mothers and children around Somaliland, we have not been able to tackle the prevalence of stunting, wasting and anemia in Somaliland, which is very high and alarming. Therefore, a collective effort across all civil society organizations is needed if we are want to achieve our goal of eradicating malnutrition in Somaliland.

We need to consolidate and reinforce our actions to achieve the national and global goals. The civil society network serves an opportunity to bring all civil society organizations together, give them a voice, and jointly contribute to achieving better nutrition outcomes for all mothers and children in Somaliland.

We are calling for more civil society organizations to join and be a ray of the Somaliland Civil Society Network for SUN.

 

Thank you all

Building national alliance for improved nutrition
