Leveraging commitments and resources for children.
- Available in:
UNICEF works in the world’s toughest places to protect the rights of every child, everywhere. Across more than 190 countries and territories, we do whatever it takes to help children and adolescents survive, thrive and fulfil their potential.
But we can’t do it alone. Partnerships are essential to achieve stronger, more equitable results for children, in the Gulf and around the world.
Because UNICEF is funded entirely by voluntary contributions, we rely on the commitment of our public and private partners.
As part of the engagement strategy underpinning the development of the 2019–2023 programme, Gulf States have endorsed the UNICEF strategic partnership, expanded presence and programme of cooperation for children.
Our partnerships programme is geared towards leveraging commitments and resources for children.
This objective has three distinct and mutually reinforcing elements:
- Strengthen the UNICEF strategic partnerships with all five States to advance child rights in the Gulf, the MENA region and globally;
- Advocate for optimal public financing for children, and leverage existing government social protection expenditure to focus on the most vulnerable children;
- Strengthen existing partnerships and develop new ones to mobilize commitments and resources for children in the Gulf, the MENA region and globally.
