Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, The (OCHA)
The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) is mandated to coordinate humanitarian response, policy development and humanitarian advocacy. OCHA carries out its coordination function primarily through the Inter-Agency Standing Committee, which is chaired by the Emergency Relief Coordinator (ERC). Participants include all humanitarian partners, from UN agencies, funds and programmes to the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and NGOs. Türkçe
Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development, The (OECD)
The Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) consists of 30 member countries sharing a commitment to democratic government and the market economy. The OECD helps governments to ensure the responsiveness of key economic areas with sectoral monitoring. Turkey joined the OECD in 1951 when it was then known as the Organisation for European Economic Cooperation (OEEC). Türkçe
Quality of Life Indicators, 25 (25QLI)
The Ministry of Interior (MOI) General Directorate of Provincial Administration with the support of the Turkish Statistical Institute (Turkstat) has produced a set of indicators to monitor the state of Turkey’s children. The development of the 25 Quality of Life Indicators (25QLI) with reference to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and EU social inclusion indicators on children is one of the most significant developments under the umbrella of the Children First project. Much like the MDG and EU models, the 25 QLI are interrelated in that an improvement in one indicator will have the knock–on effect of improvements in others — and all data will be disaggregated by gender. A Turkish version of the UN DevInfo system, which is used to monitor progress on the MDGsDevInfoTürk — will be used to monitor the 25 QLI. Turkstat have also produced a manual setting out the exact definition, means of calculation and source of data for each indicator. It is expected that the 25 QLI will improve monitoring of awareness and implementation of children’s and women’s rights, inform social policies for children and contribute to the development of a systematic structure that will protect children from the effects of poverty. The 25QLI are listed in the Winter 2007 edition of the Children First Bulletin. Türkçe
