In 2013, UNICEF moved forward with determination to build on that progress, working together with our partners in more than 190 countries to find new ways of realizing the rights of every child, especially the most disadvantaged.
Our efforts to support the most vulnerable children and their families took place against the backdrop of a global economy more stable than in years past but still fragile, with slow growth, challenging unemployment levels and an uneven recovery. Extreme poverty is heavily concentrated among the young, with 47 per cent of the world’s poor aged 18 or younger. With high levels of inequality and many of these poor children living in middleincome countries, child poverty is a truly global concern.
The Annual Report 2013 spotlights the Strategic Plan 2014–2017, UNICEF’s blueprint for fulfilling the promises of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and directing our equity-focused work for children beyond 2015. As you will read in this report, our efforts in 2013 have focused on multiple fronts – driving innovation, deepening partnerships and engaging the public to mobilize change for children. In all we do, we have continued efforts to streamline our operations, to strengthen programme monitoring to find out what is working and what is not, and to become more transparent.
