Many people first hear about UNICEF’s work through the activities of National Committees. In Europe, as in other parts of the world, these non-governmental organizations promote children’s rights, raise funds, create key corporate and civil society partnerships, and provide other invaluable support. National Committee countries are shown in yellow on the map.
Refugee and migrant response countries
In response to the needs of refugee and migrant children in Europe, UNICEF has temporarily expanded its programmatic presence in certain countries with National Committees. These countries are shown in light green on the map.
Across Europe and Central Asia UNICEF works with a number of institutions and region-wide networks to monitor and uphold children’s rights. These networks are region wide, including the countries shown in pale green on the map.
