SUN Business Network - Ethiopia

By ENN on 6 November 2017

Alem Abey is the SUN Business Network Advisor in Ethiopia. Alem discusses the process undertaken in the establishment of the soon to be launched SBN in the country and the role the Network hopes to play in strengthening nutrition in Ethiopia. The SBN has a strategic plan which outlines the priority areas of work including providing technical assistance to private companies to add value to their products, and supporting food fortification in the country.

Another key role they play is creating linkages between stakeholders in the nutrition sector and the private sector so that businesses have a seat at the table with government and others to discuss key issues around nutrition. It is through these actions that the SBN will work on improving the enabling environment for businesses to support national nutrition goals.
