UNICEF aims to make the best possible contribution to children’s and women’s rights through a combination of a human rights based approach to our programmes of cooperation with national governments and results-based planning and management.
For UNICEF, a human rights based approach to programming means that:
Children’s and women’s rights are realized when development programmes deliver results. Results-based planning and management requires UNICEF and its cooperating partners to clearly define the expected results of programmes at the outset, agree on performance indicators, allocate resources to achieve the results, and to regularly review and evaluate progress, making adjustments as necessary.
