Sport, Recreation and Play

Key to promoting development and peace, sport is increasingly part of UNICEF’s country programmes, many of which are highlighted in this booklet. Working with scores of partners, we are mobilizing governments and engaging ministries, sports associations and civil society to ensure every child the right and opportunity to sport, recreation and play. The publication features recent research on the physical, mental and social benefits of sport, and the UN Secretary-General’s recommendations on sports’ role in achieving the Millennium Development Goals.
