UNICEF-NGO Partnership in Humanitarian Settings
Beginning in 2019, ICVA and UNICEF agreed to reach out to the NGO sector to gather their feedback and perceptions of current strengths and challenges in the partnership with UNICEF and to explore pathways to improve such partnership. This resulted in the publication of ICVA’s scoping study on UNICEF-NGOs Partnership in Humanitarian Settings. The acknowledgement of both UNICEF and NGOs that more regular exchanges are needed to enable a partnership fit to respond to the challenges faced by children in today’s humanitarian landscape and the scoping study’s findings, led to the joint organisation by ICVA and UNICEF of the UNICEF-NGO Consultation for Partnership in Humanitarian Settings ‘Enhancing the Culture of Partnership’ in November 2019.
UNICEF-NGO COVID-19 Briefings
As part of the ongoing dialogue between UNICEF and its partner NGOs and as a follow up to the UNICEF’s and ICVA’s Executive Directors’ communication to partners in April 2020, ICVA and UNICEF, co-jointly with InterAction and SCHR, are convening a series of NGO briefings on Humanitarian partnerships in COVID-19 response. It is aimed at ensuring that the impact of COVID-19 and the response needed are discussed and built upon jointly by UNICEF and NGO partners to ensure a better collaboration on the ground in the collective response for children.
