Achieving the greatest impact for children

Core Resources for Results (RR) is funding without restrictions, to be used flexibly for children wherever and whenever the need is greatest.

RR enables UNICEF to achieve the greatest impact for children by ensuring expert staff across all programme areas; scaling up proven solutions globally; leading and pioneering new ideas for children; meeting children’s needs throughout childhood and adolescence; and being there before, during, and after an emergency.

The 2022 Core Resources for Results (RR) Report focuses on UNICEF’s climate and sustainability work around the world. Stories in this report illustrate how RR ensures that our work spans the critical sectors that support children’s survival and well-being, such as advancing climate-smart education in Viet Nam, tackling malnutrition in Chad due to cyclical climate-related emergencies, and protecting young people from pollution and potential violence in Burundi. You will also read how in the Eastern Caribbean, RR is used to amplify the voices of young people in climate policies and high-level forums and how UNICEF used RR in Pakistan to prepare for, respond to, and recover from devastating floods in 2022.
