UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children.
To save their lives.
To defend their rights.
To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
Children are everyone’s business and the business community have a critical role in supporting child rights.
In fact, it is well known that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will not be achieved by 2030 without support of the private sector.
Senegal is easily recognized as one country in the region where the local context presents unique opportunities and interesting challenges when it comes to working with the private sector.
UNICEF Senegal sees Private Sector engagement as a critical strategy to achieve its strategic goals and to advance children’s rights.
The “Business 4 Results” B4R approach brings to life this vision and asks to all levels of the organization to step up their work in this area.
Efforts will be made to incorporate the private sector at various key moments of the programme cycle through a flexible approach which is in line with the needs and capacities of the Country Office (CO).
The midterm review of the current Country Programme 2019-2023 is an important moment to further integrate the B4R approach in UNICEF Senegal programmatic work, ensuring full alignment with program priorities and adequate allocation of resources.
UNICEF Senegal secured a strong Partnerships with the Private Sector to fund COVID-19 response in Education, WASH and Health.
We are looking to further expand the spectrum of business engagement to new programmatic areas (particularly Nutrition, WASH, Generation Unlimited and Youth Empowerment), and modalities (market influencing, business regulation, work with SMEs, incubators and small entrepreneurs, etc.).
As the midterm review of the Country Programme is ongoing, UNICEF Senegal is looking to integrate a renewed vision of partnering with business in its programme strategies. As such, the CO is looking to enhance internal capacities to support this process and other private sector engagements activities to push the B4R agenda forward.
