Call for Proposals

SUNSAI - Scaling up Nutrition Sensitive Agriculture Interventions in Indian Himalayan Region


SUNSAI - Scaling up Nutrition Sensitive Agriculture Interventions are projects implemented by Rural Service Provider institutions  to scale up proven nutrition sensitive agriculture interventions in collaboration with local institutions. The proposed SUNSAI interventions need to have been successfully applied in similar contexts – i.e. found technically and economically viable and contributing to diversified diets.

SUNSAI aim at achieving systemic and lasting change at  the level of municipalities, village clusters or valleys. Accordingly, they increase the production as well as the consumption of nutritious foods of a larger number of people. SUNSAI are thus expected to have a more integrated approach towards nutrition, e.g. using a multi-sector approach between agriculture, health and education, by linking production and consumption, e.g. linking farmers to rural and urban markets, and by including an awareness raising component that leads to behavioral change at consumer level. They are expected to be well embedded institutionally, i.e. they are closely linked to and receive support from local key institutions such as municipalities, farmer organizations, educational institutions, health care providers, professional associations etc. SUNSAI offer success stories and learnings that can be used in national and global advocacy work.
