The State of the World's Children 2017: Children in a Digital World
As the debate about whether the internet is safe for children rages, The State of the World's Children 2017: Children in a Digital World discusses how digital access can be a game changer for children or yet another dividing line. The report represents the first comprehensive look from UNICEF at the different ways digital technology is affecting children, identifying dangers as well as opportunities. It makes a clear call to governments, the digital technology sector and telecom industries to level the digital playing field for children by creating policies, practices and products that can help children harness digital opportunities and protect them from harm.
Report on Regular Resources 2016
Regular resources (RR) are at the center of UNICEF's ability to deliver results for every child, particularly those most vulnerable. All UNICEF offices benefit from the allocation of RR, with the largest share spent on programmes for children and the balance used to support the core structure of the organization - without which we would not be able to deliver on our mandate. UNICEF's Report on Regular Resources 2016 presents key results achieved with RR in the course of the year, highlights revenue and expense trends, and acknowledges the generosity of government and private-sector partners who have generously contributed RR to UNICEF.
