Support UNICEF in Côte d’Ivoire

Current priorities            

In the new development context, UNICEF Côte d’Ivoire’s main strategies in terms of child protection will be based on:

  • Strengthening partnerships with government
  • Strengthening institutional capacities (specific support will be given to the rehabilitation of civil registry centres in ex-rebel areas and to civil registry staff training)
  • Progressive national scaling-up of programme (through support to the implementation of the National Plan for Children) 

At the programmatic level, UNICEF intends to support the birth registration system through technical and material assistance to the Ministry of Interior (civil registry centres) and the Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene (health centres). The birth registration rate will be improved through a national registration campaign. The fight against gender based violence (especially sexual violence, FGM and child marriage) will be based on the strengthening of knowledge and community and school self-protection mechanisms. Victims of sexual violence will receive medical, legal and psychosocial assistance. Technical and material support will be provided to the Ministry of Labor and the Ministry of Social Affairs for the implementation of the Fight Against Trafficking and the Child Labor National Plan, that has recently been approved by the National Assembly. In the framework of juvenile justice, UNICEF will assist the government in improving legislation and in creating alternatives to the formal justice system.
