2016


NAIROBI, 06 May 2016 – UNICEF is pleased to introduce the first ever Africa-wide Publications Catalogue, which compiles the evidence that UNICEF and its partners are generating on the situation of children and young people in Africa in 2016. Through a continental lens, UNICEF hopes to reach more effectively to African constituencies such as the Africa Union and the Africa Group at the UN, but also to promote south-south learning exchange among countries in the continent.

Knowledge and evidence are essential for informing the development, monitoring and implementation of policies and programmes for the realization of children’s rights. This is particularly important in Africa, where the current demographic revolution will see the under-18 population increase by two thirds in the near future, almost reaching 1 billion by mid-century. This means close to half of the world population of children will be African by the end of the 21st century, and the need for strong evidence to inform the implementation of social policies and budgets for children is undisputable.

The 2016 catalogue features over 250 reports and studies that will be made available over the course of the year. These reports and studies represent the collective knowledge produced by UNICEF Country and Regional Offices in Africa. They capture the work that UNICEF and its partners do on the continent to support children and young people realise their rights to survival, development and protection.

The publications cover a wide range of topics, organised under the following categories:

  1. Child Poverty and Socio-Economic Development
  2. Public Finance for Children
  3. Social Protection
  4. Child Protection
  5. Maternal and Child Health
  6. Child Nutrition
  7. Water, Sanitation and Hygiene
  8. Education and early childhood development
  9. HIV/AIDS
  10. Adolescents
  11. Humanitarian Action, Resilience and Peace Building
  12. Climate Change
  13. Miscellaneous

Most publications are, and will be, available online. For each publication, the catalogue includes Authors/Contributors, web-links, dates of (planned) publication and contact details for additional information.

For further information, please contact the social policy teams in ESARO, MENARO and WCARO.
