Global Advocacy Networks

Global advocacy networks play an important role in advancing children’s rights. UNICEF is an active participant in many formal and informal child rights networks at global, regional and national levels. These networks provide opportunities to share knowledge and technical expertise and to collaborate in advocacy efforts, joint programming and emergency response. Global networks that actively engage CSOs include the Child Rights Information Network, Global Movement for Children and the NGO Group for the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Included among the key advocacy networks for children are:

Child Protection:

Children Rights:
