Research and reports
UNICEF’s work is grounded in empirical data, rigorous research and thoughtful analysis.
UNICEF supports and uses research, evaluations and data to determine what works best for children in Eastern and Southern Africa. We draw on sound evidence to create programmes, campaigns and initiatives where they are most needed. Explore our reports, data and research from across the region.

The Knowledge for Children in Africa publication catalogue collects studies and reports that are being produced on the continent, representing the collective knowledge supported by UNICEF.
The aim of the catalogue is to create an increased demand for products that will be produced by UNICEF over the coming year, and to provide timely information on the knowledge UNICEF and partners are generating in Africa.
The availability of knowledge and evidence is crucial for informing policies and programmes to ensure they have an impact on children and contribute to the realization of children’s rights.
