UNICEF Executive Board Special Focus Session
Partners for change and development:
the growing partnership between the European Union and UNICEF
Guest speaker: Mr Andris Piebalgs, European Commissioner for Development
4 February 2014 – 10:30am to 12pm
A growing partnership for children
Over the past decades, the European Union (EU), which contributes some 60 per cent of the world’s
official development assistance, has progressively expanded its emphasis on protecting children’s
rights. The EU has developed a coherent policy framework in support of the Convention on the
Rights of the Child, with UNICEF an increasingly important partner across a range of development
and humanitarian issues.
The growing partnership has also included a high-level policy dialogue aimed at increasing
systematic engagement and development of common EU proposals benefiting children.
In 2013, UNICEF signed contracts with the EU worth €389 million ($515 million) in support of
programmes and emergency operations on nutrition, child protection, water and sanitation,
education, justice for children and health. While cooperation between the EU and UNICEF has been
further strengthened at the country level worldwide, with a focus on the monitoring and analysis of
the situation of children, a longer-term and more strategic relationship has also evolved around the
achievement of the MDGs and poverty eradication as well as food security, disaster risk reduction,
resilience and social protection.
The Special Focus Session will offer the UNICEF Executive Board an opportunity to learn more
about the various forms of the EU-UNICEF partnership. The EU and UNICEF are currently
collaborating in support of birth registration and towards ending violence against children as well as
harmful traditional practices and female genital mutilation. The European Commission also recently
announced that it would commit an unprecedented €3.5 billion ($4.6 billion) towards reducing
malnutrition between 2014 and 2020; UNICEF will be one of the implementing partners. And as part
of their strategic collaboration, the EU, with UNICEF, recently developed the Child Rights Toolkit:
Integrating Child Rights in Development Cooperation.
Board members will be able to learn more on the synergies between the UNICEF Strategic Plan
2014-2017 and the new EU Agenda for Change 2014-2020 promoting inclusive growth, with a focus
on the most vulnerable people. The session will also offer Member States an opportunity to reflect
on the partnership within the context of the post-2015 development agenda and in view of the
upcoming 25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
