What is a CRF?

Primary school students receive nutritious mid-day meals of fortified wheat-soya, in Nepal

The 2014 SUN Movement Progress Report describes a CRF as a single and agreed set of expected (or common) results generated through the effective engagement of different sectors of government and the multiple (non-government) actors who have capacity to influence people’s nutrition. This set of results should be based on the national goals and targets for nutrition and reflect the ways in which different sectors and actors can best contribute to the achievement of these targets through their individual and collective actions. While the ‘results’ referred to in a CRF are guided by the 1,000 days window of opportunity to improve nutrition, CRFs may also include targets for obesity and/or overweight reduction.
