UNICEF mobilizes partnerships to leverage resources for children, build greater interest around children’s issues, and advocate for more attention to be given to children in new aid modalities such as the sector-wide approach (to development assistance) and direct/general budget support.
The Vice-Ministry of Public Investment and External Finance in the Ministry of Planning is the central partner for planning, coordination and monitoring of the programme. Specific components of the programme are implemented and monitored with the Ministries of Health and Sports, Education, Water, and Justice, as well as with relevant Vice-Ministries within each. Other major partners at the central level include the National Electoral Court; universities; research institutes; the Ombudsperson; the National Institute of Statistics; the ANNI News Agency; the Bolivian Alliance for Children and Adolescents; the National Congress; and the Constituent Assembly.
Activities at the community and municipal levels are coordinated through municipal governments, departmental services for each sector, community promoters and agents, indigenous organizations, Child Defenders offices and local non-governmental organizations.
UNICEF is an active member of all United Nations inter-agency committees established to oversee the implementation of United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF), and will be closely involved in the newly developed nutrition joint programme together with World Food Program (WFP), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), International Labour Organization,(ILO), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), World Health Organization /Pan American Health Organization (WHO/PAHO) and other agencies.
In activities related to child labour and trafficking, collaboration will take place with ILO and the International Organization for Migration (IOM).
In child survival and adolescent development programmes, UNICEF will work closely with UNFPA and PAHO.
