The Learning Route SUN Civil Society Network and Procasur Corporation have launched a new Learning Route Programme!
The Learning Route: Leveraging Scale Up Nutrition Civil Society Network (SUN CSN) to strengthen regional platforms and to promote learning across countries on how to address malnutrition in Rwanda is the result of the active and fruitful collaboration among the Civil Society Network of the Scaling-Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement and PROCASUR; building on the achievements of the pilot project in Senegal and Peru in September 2014.
The Learning Route will be implemented in Rwanda, in the localities of Kigali, Nyanza, Huye and Gisagara between the 30th of October and 5th of November 2016. Applications are ongoing.
It will offer the opportunity to learn from Rwanda’s experience and its objectives are:
- To identify and examine innovative and successful initiatives promoted by SUN Alliances’ members to scale up nutrition at community, provincial and national level and understand the process and the factors that brought the success and analyse the potential for scaling up/out.
- To recognize modalities through which Civil Society enhance national and local policies and strategies to effectively address nutrition problems with a special focus to vulnerable and disadvantaged population.
Identify effective social mobilization and communication strategies to raise awareness on nutrition-sensitive issues and to promote behavioral changes.
- To identify the catalytic role played by the Civil Society in fostering sustainable pro-poor Public Private Partnership engaging in multi-stakeholders decision making platforms and its key role in ensuring visibility and benefits to vulnerable smallholders along the value chain development process, as well livelihood enhancement in remote rural areas.
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: 10th September 2016
The Learning Route is open to SUN Civil Society delegations from Ethiopia; Kenya; Malawi; Rwanda; Sierra Leone; Namibia; Nigeria; Tanzania; Uganda; Zambia; Zimbabwe. Each delegation will be composed by 3 representatives from the Civil Society working at national or subnational level.
