The Civil Society- Scaling Up Nutrition in Nigeria (CS-SUNN) has flagged-off a partnership project aimed at improving Nigeria’s nutrition systems. The organisation said it will work to improve Nigeria’s Human Capital Development (HCD) by attaining 20 million additional healthy under-five-years-old children surviving and not stunted.
The project, which is at its second phase, is for three years and is designed to strengthen the Nigeria nutrition systems to be more result-driven, effective, serviceable, efficient and transparent for human capital development.
CS-SUNN Board of Trustees Chairman, Dr. Bamidele Omotola said the PINNS 2.0 project will build on the gains of the just concluded PINNS 1.0.
While congratulating the alliance, he called on stakeholders to work closely with CS-SUNN to achieve the project outcomes; this he said will contribute significantly to improving nutritional outcomes for Nigeria.
“Nigeria’s Human Capital Development target by 2030 is to attain 20 million additional healthy (under-five-years-old children surviving and not stunted), educated (completing secondary school), and productive (youth entering the labor force) Nigerians,” he said.
According to him, PINNS 2.0 project was formally launched by CS-SUNN and nutrition stakeholders in Nigeria at a hybrid Inception meeting held on November 15, 2021 in Abuja.
The meeting was aimed at formally kick-starting the project, presenting to stakeholders the project goal, objectives, implementation strategies and getting buy-in of stakeholders for smooth implementation of the project. This Day
