Alianza de las Organizaciones de la Sociedad Civil por la Soberanía y Seguridad Alimentaria Nutricional, El Salvador (NUTRES), El Salvador

About

NUTRES contributes to the construction, execution and monitoring of proposed solutions to the problem of malnutrition, through advocacy processes,  awareness-raising, coordination and articulation with the different sectors of national life.

The alliance of civil society organizations for food and nutrition sovereignty and security was created as a result of the project "mobilization of civil society to eradicate malnutrition with a comprehensive, intersectoral and gender approach". The alliance was launched in August 2014 and is currently made up of 8 civil society organizations.

The alliance has begun advocacy on important issues related to food sovereignty and security, such as the promotion, protection and support of breastfeeding and also the ratification of article 69 that promotes the incorporation of the right to adequate food and to water in the constitution.

NUTRES advocates the recognition of nutrition as the national priority and advocates for the technical and financial strengthening of the entities that address the issue. It also advocates for the approval of legal frameworks in favor of nutritional food sovereignty and security, and defends the culture of breastfeeding as a natural practice.
