United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)
UNICEF provides humanitarian and developmental assistance to children and mothers in developing countries. It is one of the members of the United Nations Development Group and its executive committee. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) is the only council within the United Nations that advocates for the rights of children and equates the rights of the child with sustainable development. As such, UNICEF provides on-the-ground support, research, long-term care, and emergency relief to marginalized populations, while collaborating with existing non-governmental organizations and other United Nations specialized committees to make positive steps forward. With the Millennium Development Goals drawing to a close and drafting of the post-2015 development agenda underway, UNICEF is uniquely posited to influence policy over the future of children’s rights.
Please note that at WebMUN 2017 we are simulating the Executive Board of UNICEF in terms of composition and size; however, delegates are not limited to the strict mandate of the Executive Board, as a budgetary and administrative body, during the conference
