Globally, last year saw remarkable advances in innovation across a wide range of technologies. From artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain, to robotics and quantum computing, there is heightened awareness of the threats and potential of technology. UNICEF is committed to harnessing the potential of tech and other innovations to co-create to discover, iterate, and scale solutions that deliver impact for some of the most challenging issues affecting children's lives.

In 2021, the establishment of the UNICEF Office of Innovation's dynamic partnership architecture sparked a co-creation movement with like-minded supporters and collaborators, planting seeds of transformational change with the potential to yield significant returns.

Two years on, Impact Brief 2023 showcases - in both narrative and numbers - how UNICEF is unlocking the potential of innovation for every child, everywhere.
