To address nutrition issues, a multisectoral and targeted approach to combat stun ng will be applied. Key strategies to reduce stunting will include: coordination and collaboration across sectors to enhance convergence of interventions for greater impact; community engagement; behaviour change communication for the uptake of nutrition services; and sustained adoption of practices that promote good nutrition.
Partnerships with the private sector and academia to support the implementation of the food fortification strategy will be developed through the Scaling Up Nutri on (SUN) Business Networks. Efforts will also focus on the continued establishment of Government led food and nutrition security committees at all administrative levels in order to facilitate cross-sector linkages and collaboration for scaling up nutrition at sub-national levels. Through these efforts, the UN will support increased access to resources for women and youth in order to increase their food and nutrition security.
In line with Zim Asset, the Food and Nutri on Policy, and the National Nutri on and Food Fortification strategies, the UN will prioritize delivery of high-impact nutrition interventions based on global guidance and evidence. Using a lifecycle approach, the UN will incorporate strategies and actions that will support Zimbabwe in its attainment of the World Health Assembly targets for increasing the rates of exclusive breastfeeding, reducing stunting, reducing anaemia and controlling obesity by 2025.
Agricultural production and productivity depends on energy and environmental resources such as land and water. The UN will promote resource-efficient technologies, sustainable land and water resources management and renewable and sustainable energy solutions crucial for sustained food and nutrition security that spans generations. Education, training and capacity development in all these areas will be essential.
