UNICEF-assisted results for children in 190 countries and territories could not be achieved without the crucial partnerships with public-sector partners: governments, UN agencies, international financial institutions and global programme partnerships as well as innovative financial mechanisms. These pages provide information about UNICEF public-sector partners, including highlights of the results achieved together and information on immediate needs and ways in which to partner with UNICEF in furthering children's rights.

UNICEF and the 2030 agenda

In order to achieve all the Sustainable Development Goals by the year 2030, children must be put at the centre of the agenda. The 17 new goals are all relevant for children and together constitute a global, rights-based agenda for children, with a focus on the most vulnerable. Learn more about how all the goals touch the lives of children and youth.


2016 Annual Results Reports

UNICEF’s Annual Results Reports 2016 take stock of the organization’s results at the global, regional and country levels. Based on the seven outcome sectors and two cross-cutting areas of the Strategic Plan 2014–2017, the reports cover health; HIV and AIDS; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); nutrition; education; child protection; social inclusion; humanitarian action; and gender. They align the results achieved by UNICEF in 2016 with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and set out the proposed work plans for delivering on shared commitments to advance children’s rights and equity. The reports also serve to highlight the achievements made possible by the contribution of loosely earmarked thematic funding received from partners.

Some 350,000 refugees and migrants arrived in Europe in 2016 despite border closures and the European Union-Turkey agreement in March. Such trends are expected to continue in 2017. Close to half of all arrivals by sea to Greece and Italy continue to be women and children, predominately from the Syrian Arab Republic and Afghanistan.
