Data for Children: Strategic Framework

Data is a important tool for informing programmes, policies and decisions. Effective use of data can help us not just track results for children, but also shape those results with better insights about what’s working, what’s not, which children are thriving and which are being left behind.

This Strategic Framework is designed to provide a broad overview of how UNICEF thinks about data for children and to lay out initial steps for reorienting investments. The framework begins with UNICEF’s approach to data work. Based on that approach, it also provides an outline of the changes that UNICEF needs to make in the coming years. The document concludes with key issues that UNICEF country offices should consider in plotting their own data investments in the coming years.
