As we swap out old for new, pages will be in transition. Thanks for your patience – please keep coming back to see the improvements.

Most partnerships between UNICEF and civil society organizations take place at country level, but there are other opportunities for collaboration.  Would you like to receive updates about UNICEF programmes and activities? Please click on this link to submit your organization's information. Is your organization interested in collaborating with UNICEF directly? Please contact the relevant UNICEF country office, the contact information for which can be found here

Please note that non-governmental organizations (NGOs) do not need consultative status with [GB1] ECOSOC to engage with UNICEF. Those that have consultative status with ECOSOC are welcome to observe and make interventions during meetings of the UNICEF Executive Board. Participating organizations are requested to submit their credentials to the Office of the Secretary of the Executive Board of UNICEF (contact details are posted in the UN Journal before each Executive Board meeting). NGOs may also choose to become members of the NGO Committee on UNICEF, established by the UNICEF Executive Board. The NGO Committee on UNICEF facilitates the engagement of NGOs with the organization and can be contacted via email: info@ngocomunicef.org.

Knowledge-based collaboration:  UNICEF maintains relationships with a number of universities, research and policy institutes, and other knowledge-based organizations in order to share technical expertise. In addition, UNICEF’s Innocenti Research Centre in Florence regularly conducts research in collaboration with knowledge-based institutions.
