Since 2018, the Pooled Fund, has successfully built and strengthened national civil society alliances’ (CSA) participation in national multi-stakeholder multi-sectoral nutrition efforts, in an effort to catalyze an enabling national environment and scale-up improved nutrition through an innovative approach. The Pooled Fund has strongly contributed to empowered, representative and recognized civil society voices around the policy planning and implementation table in recipient SUN Movement countries. The Pooled Fund 2.0 is administered by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS).

The Pooled Fund is coherent with the SUN Movement stewardship arrangements and processes at national and global levels. In particular, the Pooled Fund will support civil society organizations and alliances through actions which reinforce in-country capabilities of all stakeholders in SUN Countries across four thematic areas:

a) Continuously improve country planning to end malnutrition.

b) Mobilise, advocate and communicate for impact.

c) Strengthen capacity of government and non-governmental systems, multi-sectoral teams, and their individual members, for scaled-up nutrition action at all levels.

d) Ensure equity, equality and non-discrimination for all, with women and girls at the centre of efforts.

The Pooled Fund will support both tested and innovative approaches for learning and experience exchange, including peer-to-peer learning, trainings combining face-to-face and distance learning, and coaching. Special consideration will also be given to those projects that include sharing lessons learned, knowledge management and success stories from the projects with the other members of the Multi-Sector/Stakeholder Platform and the Movement as a whole.
