The UN Network draws upon a series of accountability mechanisms and processes, with a view to ensuring that it is making valuable contributions to the SUN Movement. A global Steering Committee, comprised of the directors and/or chiefs of nutrition from FAO, IFAD, UNICEF, WFP and WHO, guides the UN Network (including REACH), following the procedures outlined in the REACH MoU. At the country level, the Chair of the UN Network updates the UNCT periodically on progress.
Specific monitoring and evaluation efforts are guided by the UN Network’s M&E system which is comprised of various elements, including the UN Network Results Framework, regional and global accountability measures and country-level monitoring. Quantitative and qualitative data on country-level activities is tracked through an outline portal on an annual basis, culminating in country dashboards. At the regional and global levels, progress is measured vis-à-vis activities identified in annual UNN workplans, endorsed by regional directors/representatives and the Steering Committee respectively. These activities feed into an aggregated UNN reporting analysis, the Global Nutrition Report and the SUN Movement Annual Progress Reports as part of efforts to foster mutual accountability.
