Supplemental guidance for the SUN budget analysis

Since 2015, budget analysis work based on the SUN Approach has been conducted by 50 countries and has provided valuable insights into the nature of government spending allocations to nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive areas. The SUN Movement has recognised that there is a growing need to support SUN member countries through replicability and refinement of the budget analysis exercise, often referred to as the “3-Step Approach”. Building off of the previous Budget Analysis for Nutrition: A Guidance Note for Countries (2018), MQSUN+ worked with the SUN Movement Secretariat, country representatives, and technical experts to develop this guidance note. This updated guidance note aims to update the ‘3-Step Approach’ and improve the nutrition-sensitive methodology by refining the guidance for determining budget allocations in SUN countries.
