Global Programme Partnerships (GPPs)

GPPs have long been part of the development architecture, and recently become a key institutional instrument to deliver global public goods and focus response to global challenges. UNICEF has historically played an important role in shaping and co-managing GPPs, contributing through its convening power and extensive global, regional country presence with operational and technical capacities at all levels. UNICEF also works with GPPs to address transnational issues, such as negotiating prices of essential commodities with industries, to leverage greater aid effectiveness.
