Social Policy, Research and Communication
The Social Policy, Research & Communication programme will contribute to the establishment, implementation and monitoring of evidence-based policies and legislative frameworks for the realization of the rights of all children and adolescents, including ensuring that such policies are adequately resourced.
Social policy, knowledge management, programme coordination and communication will provide technical support to the three programme sections as well as direct support to government, working closely with development partners and civil society.
This includes strengthening capacities in knowledge generation and statistics, accountability and international reporting, communication for development to promote positive social norms and safe behaviours, technology for development to promote children’s participation and advocacy to raise the profile of children’s rights in national dialogue. The programme component will also support the mainstreaming of HIV, gender, adolescent development and participation and emergency preparedness into all programme areas.
