In Latin America and the Caribbean, UNICEF has been collaborating significantly with the business sector to maximize results for children and accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The 2022 annual report Engaging business for children’s rights presents achievements and progress of the collaboration between UNICEF and business stakeholders in the region. Throughout 2022, UNICEF strengthened already-existing partnerships and developed new strategic collaborations with more than 1,360 companies and other business stakeholders. Thanks to these collaborations, UNICEF was able to implement and scale its programmatic action, as well as contributing to the improvement of 11 national policies on family-friendly workplaces and food systems. This allowed to reach tens of millions of children and caregivers across the region.

UNICEF calls on the business sector to contribute strategically to the development and well-being of children. UNICEF urges the business sector 1) to address the adverse impact of its activities on children’s rights, as well as 2) partnering with UNICEF to impact positively children and families,  at the workplace, marketplace, and surrounding communities.
