Ayeyarwaddy Region

Background

SUN CSA Myanmar was formalized in 2015 after the country signed up as a SUN Country in 2013. In 2016, World Vision, with the support from the Steering Committee, initiated the sub-nationalization for the SUN CSA Ayeyarwaddy Delta Region. The main objective for decentralization was to more effectively represent and coordinate inputs from local and community-based CSOs at the sub-national level.

Why Ayeyarwaddy Delta Region was selected?

According to 2015 MDHS, Ayeyarwaddy Delta is a region with fourth highest stunting prevalence and second highest in terms of cases of stunted children. There was strong commitment from World Vision at the time of initiating decentralization together with support from the donor which is Livelihood and Food Security Trust Fund (LIFT) managed by UNOPS in Myanmar as well as from the SUN CSA’s Steering Committee at the national level. In addition, there was a diverse member of the SUN CSA based or implementing nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive projects in the region.
