This concept note outlines a Recovery for All strategy to assist countries to meet their CRC obligations through a robust social and economic recovery. It builds on UNICEF’s progress in advancing upstream social and economic policies, as well as ongoing technical assistance to interested protection and pro-poor socio-economic policies. At the same time partnerships are essential — the approach is premised on strong collaboration among UN agencies and other international agencies that work closely in supporting governments. Ultimately, Recovery for All seeks to avoid retrogression in the realization of children’s rights and to ensure that recovery efforts benefit the most excluded children and families, rather than accentuating social and economic disparities.
