Local policy and institutional development


In provinces and cities where UNICEF does not provide direct assistance, UNICEF works with local government executives on:
  • Promoting the Child-Friendly Movement – UNICEF supports local government units, to enable them to deliver the “Four Gifts for Children”: (1) The Local Development Plan for Children; (2) Local Investment Plan for Children; (3) Local Code on Children; and, (4) regular reporting on the state of children
  • Monitoring children’s rights – UNICEF helps recognize high-impact and sustainable governance practices and activities for children, and promotes assessing the child-friendliness of local government units from the barangay (village) to the provincial level using self-assessment tools
  • Institution and capacity-building – UNICEF assists local government units in crafting local ordinances on children and mainstreaming child rights in local development planning
