UNICEF-assisted results for children in more than 150 countries and territories could not be achieved without the crucial partnerships with public-sector partners: governments, UN agencies, international financial institutions and global programme partnerships as well as innovative financial mechanisms. These pages provide information about UNICEF public-sector partners, including highlights of the results achieved together and information on immediate needs and ways in which to partner with UNICEF in furthering children's rights.

UNICEF and the 2030 agenda

Executive Director Anthony Lake on the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals on 25 September 2015:  “We will measure our progress, yes, through statistics. But the true measure will be in every child lifted out of poverty; through every mother who survives childbirth; every girl who does not lose her childhood to early marriage. By helping the most disadvantaged children today – by giving them a fair chance in life – we can help break the bonds of extreme poverty tomorrow.”

The 17 new goals are all relevant for children and together constitute a global, rights-based agenda for children, with a focus on the most vulnerable. Read about "Progress for Children" on .

Refugee and migrant crisis Europe

The refugee and migrant crisis in Europe - whether off its coasts, on its shores, or alongside its roadsides - is a crisis for children. One in every four asylum seekers in Europe so far this year has been a child. A total of 110,000 children sought asylum between January and July 2015.
