And we never give up.
UNICEF, For every child
Scope of Work
Country programme contextAfter several years of economic transformation and focus on infrastructure development, the country has recognized the need to implement a more equitable social agenda in a constrained economic environment. This is an opportunity for UNICEF, through its proposed country programme for 2019-2023 (CP), to consolidate past gains and place child rights at the centre of the national agenda through policy advice, partnerships, public campaigns and support to social movements. Programme strategies include advocacy, policy support, capacity development and partnerships to accelerate results for children.
The programme of cooperation, with a yearly budget estimated at US$ 3.5 million and a more ambitious annual OR target of US$ 2.6 million (13 million in total), will include two integrated and interdependent programmes to optimize the synergy between policy advice and programme implementation. The child protection and equity programme will focus on policy, advocacy and system strengthening to address bottlenecks in the enabling environment. The child survival, development and learning programme will advocate that all children, particularly those in underserved areas, have equitable access to quality health and education services, and will promote essential family practices through an integrated district approach.
In addition, UNICEF’s programme will strengthen joint programming and partnerships with other United Nations organizations to: address poverty; enhance quality of education, improve children, adolescent and maternal health; achieve gender equality and empower young people and support greater availability and use of disaggregated data for sustainable development.
To achieve these goals, UNICEF Equatorial Guinea will need to leverage resources from the private sector, bilateral and multilateral partners and develop a range of new and innovative partnerships that will also include civil society organisations, foundations/philanthropic organisations and individual donors.
