UNICEF undertakes evidence-based analysis to build national commitment towards effective policies, laws and budgets that promote the rights and improve the lives of the most deprived children and women. This involves understanding the situation at country level by supporting and promoting child poverty studies, real time monitoring and the situation analysis of children's and women's rights. It opens the door for UNICEF’s participation in policy and budget debates on areas such as social protection and social budgeting that influence key policy decisions affecting the lives of disadvantaged children and their families.
The cases highlighted in this publication are illustrative examples of some of our work on social and
economic policy and highlight UNICEF’s and its partners’ experience in making policy work a core strategy for reaching the most deprived.
