SUN MOVEMENT COORDINATOR MEETS HIS MAJESTY


The Coordinator of The Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement and United Nations (UN) Assistant Secretary General, Ms. Gerda Verburg paid a courtesy call on His Majesty King Letsie III at the Royal Palace in Maseru on Wednesday.

According to the information received from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Relations through its Information Office, the purpose of the Coordinator's visit was in recognition of His Majesty as the African Union Champion for Nutrition and the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) Ambassador for Nutrition.

The visit was also to commend Lesotho for the recently launched National Food and Nutrition Policy.

In 2014, His Majesty was appointed as the African Union Nutrition Champion and that selection was renewed last year until 2020.

He has also been appointed as the Special Ambassador on Nutrition for FAO. 

The announcement was made at a high-level International Symposium on Sustainable Food Systems for Healthy Diets and Improved Nutrition held to explore country-level challenges and successes in the nutritional reshaping of food production, processing, marketing and retail systems last year 

Meanwhile, in his New Year’s (2017) message to the nation, His Majesty acknowledged his selection, saying it is an honour to Basotho hence they should feel proud about it.
