Each year since 2010 there has been a High-Level Meeting and a series of other gatherings held in New York during the United Nations General Assembly, to increase political attention to the issue of nutrition and encourage greater support for the efforts of SUN countries and the Movement.
As a result of the dramatic increase in political attention to nutrition throughout 2013, SUN countries and stakeholder groups have sought to create space for more in-depth, structured interaction. The SUN Movement Global Gathering offers an opportunity for this form of interaction. Representatives from SUN countries and across the Movement will participate in the workshop-style event to solve practical bottlenecks and achieve concrete results.
The purpose of the 2013 SUN Movement Global Gathering is to enhance the Movement’s impact through:
  1. *Demonstrating results in SUN countries – contributing to the learning agenda by focusing on how results can best be achieved;
  2. *Enabling countries to seek solutions to help them scale up nutrition from other countries and networks;
  3. *Bolstering mutual accountability within the Movement – with all constituents – countries, networks, Secretariat and members of the Lead Group giving accounts of their contributions; and
  4. *Envisioning the Movement beyond 2015.
