Sharpening the equity focus:Selected innovations and lessons learned fromUNICEF-assisted programmes 2009-2010
This document features some of the most notable innovations, lessons learned and good practices from UNICEF’s 2009 and2010 programme reporting, incorporating updated information and results obtained as of late 2011. These examples represent just a few of the numerous activities UNICEF supports in more than 150 countries and territories around the world. They arepresented here to highlight innovative initiatives of UNICEF and its country-level partners and to share lessons learned andgood practices we have identied in working to reach the most deprived children and families.After more than two years of implementation, the seventeen examples included in this compilation provide evidence of results inall ve focus areas of UNICEF’s Medium Term Strategic Plan (MTSP) 2006-2013* as well as in its cross-cutting areas. Notably,these innovations and lessons learned are relevant for UNICEF’s intensied focus on equitable development results and therights of the most deprived children.It is important to recognize that lessons gained through cooperation in one country or context are not necessarily valid for or transferable to the circumstances of another. We hope that this compilation will be useful in two ways: to provide a sense of therange of UNICEF work across regions and to provide some indications of where to look for emerging experiences which couldrene or sharpen future programmes from an equity perspective.Each of these pieces is a summary. More detailed information is available from the UNICEF Country Ofces, which providedthe original material. If you are interested in learning more about a particular topic or featured innovation, or would like to makecomments, please contact Policy and Practice in UNICEF Headquarters (lessonslearned@unicef.org).Richard Morgan
