Japan Trust Fund for Scaling Up Nutrition

About the Program

The Japan Trust Fund for Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Investments is a three-phased program to scale up nutrition investments and provide the framework for a sustained partnership between the Government of Japan and the World Bank to address malnutrition. 

Launched in 2009, Phase I (Initiation), supported by a US$ 2 million financial commitment from the Government of Japan, financed catalytic country-level activities to lay the foundation for the development of new country nutrition plans, lending projects and IDA investments in select countries, as well as to stimulate the set-up of the SUN movement.

The Trust Fund, currently in Phase II (Consolidation), with a financial commitment of US$20 million from the Government of Japan over a four-year period aims to:

  1. consolidate and expand the catalytic activities begun under Phase I to support the scale-up of nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions in high-burden undernutrition countries;
  2. to generate operational knowledge about how to effectively implement nutrition-sensitive interventions in non-nutrition sectors (a multi-sectoral approach to nutrition) such as agriculture, social protection, water and sanitation, and education; and
  3. to support the work of the SUN movement through a specific focus on the SUN countries, including the continued provision of support for the SUN leadership and governance structure and dissemination of lessons learned for effective multi-sectoral approaches to nutrition.

Both phases II and III (Institutionalization) will support countries with costed scale-up and implementation plans as well as other relevant analytics that support and improve the quality of IDA investments. The Japan Trust Fund will also strengthen in-country capacity to implement nutrition programs, knowledge sharing and developing information systems to monitor and evaluate the impact of nutrition investments.
