UNICEF Somalia Annual Report 2015
For UNICEF Somalia, 2015 was a year of highs and lows. We saw positive progress for children and their
rights but also the devastating loss of four of our colleagues in an attack in Puntland.
In October, Somalia became the 196th country to ratify the Convention on the Rights of the Child. This is
excellent news for children.The Convention provides an important framework for policy and legislation on children’s rights. UNICEF immediately started working closely with the federal government to ensure its implementation.
The report covers the following:
- 2015 in Review
- Child Protection
- Social Policy
- Emergency Response
- Cross Sectoral
- Donor Support
