SPOTLIGHT

Places and Spaces: Environments and children’s well-being

Report Card 17 explores how 43 OECD/EU countries are faring in providing healthy environments for children. Do children have clean water to drink? Do they have good-quality air to breathe? Are their homes free of lead and mould? How many children live in overcrowded homes? How many have access to green play spaces, safe from road traffic? Data show that a nation’s wealth does not guarantee a healthy environment. Far too many children are deprived of a healthy home, irreversibly damaging their current and future well-being. Beyond children’s immediate environments, over-consumption in some of the world’s richest countries is destroying children’s environments globally. This threatens both children worldwide and future generations. To provide all children with safe and healthy environments, governments, policymakers, businesses and all stakeholders are called to act on a set of policy recommendations.

Jim Grant - UNICEF Visionary
Jim Grant - UNICEF Visionary

AUTHOR(S)
Richard Jolly

Published: 2001 Innocenti Publications
This book glimpses the leadership and achievements of Jim Grant during his period as Executive Director of UNICEF (1980-1995). Each chapter is written by one of his close colleagues - one of those who was privileged to share in the excitement of the efforts and victories for children during those intense years. Jim Grant was a professional and a visionary, an analyst with vast experience and an activist of almost unlimited commitment. At the time of his death it was estimated that, because of his influence, at least 25 million children were alive who would otherwise have died in early life.
Independent Institutions Protecting Children's Rights
Independent Institutions Protecting Children's Rights

AUTHOR(S)
Gerison Lansdown

Published: 2001 Innocenti Digest
This Digest focuses on independent human rights institutions for children, and the urgent need to create such institutions in every country in the world to protect, promote, and monitor children's rights. Children are among the most vulnerable group in any society, with no vote, no access to the powerful lobbies that influence government agendas, and little access to the legal system and courts to protect their rights. Their needs in terms of education, health, child care, and housing are critical, and the costs of failing children are high for any society. This Digest evaluates the effectiveness and impact of existing institutions, examines the essential characteristics required if such institutions are to fulfil their functions, and challenges the objections frequently presented. Information on existing independent, statutory bodies - their constitutional base, mandate and activities - is also included.

Gerison Lansdown

Published: 2001 Innocenti Insights
Dans cet Insight Innocenti, Gerison Lansdown examine l’article 12 de la Convention relative aux droits de l’enfant, selon lequel les enfants ont le droit de participer aux décisions qui les concernent. Lansdown se livre à une étude approfondie de la signification de cet article en tant qu’instrument au service des enfants pour protester contre les violations de leurs droits et agir pour défendre ces droits. Elle met aussi l’accent sur ce que l’article n’énonce pas, par exemple le fait qu’il ne donne pas aux enfants le droit de fouler aux pieds les droits des autres - en particulier des parents. Elle recommande avec insistance d’écouter les enfants, indique les conséquences d’un manquement en ce sens et récuse un grand nombre des arguments qui ont été émis contre la participation des enfants. L’Insight se veut, avant tout, un guide pratique sur la question, fournissant des listes récapitulatives claires pour la participation des enfants aux conférences, et de nombreux exemples concrets d’initiatives récentes.

Children's Rights Glossary
Children's Rights Glossary

AUTHOR(S)
Sharon Detrick

Published: 2000 Innocenti Publications
The Children's Rights Glossary is published as a companion volume to the International Children's Rights Thesaurus. It aims to provide a detailed key to the specialized terminology used in children's rights and particularly in the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Although both the Glossary and the Thesaurus are intended as information-handling tools for information professionals, it is hoped that the Glossary will also be useful in promoting a better understanding of children's rights terminology amongst a non-specialist audience.

Published: 2000 Innocenti Publications
El Glosario sobre los Derechos del Niño constituye un complemento del Tesauro Internacional sobre los Derechos del Niño. Ambos volúmenes han sido elaborados por el Centro Internacional para el Desarrollo del Niño (CIDN), que forma parte de UNICEF. Su objetivo es proporcionar una guía detallada a la terminología especializada que se utiliza en el ámbito de los derechos del niño y, en particular, en la Convención sobre los Derechos del Niño. Aunque tanto el Glosario como el Tesauro están destinados a servir principalmente de instrumentos funcionales para la gestión de datos a los profesionales de la información, se espera que el Glosario cumpla además la finalidad de fomentar una mejor comprensión de la terminología relativa a los derechos del niño entre el público no especializado.

Published: 2000 Innocenti Publications
Ce glossaire des droits des enfants est publié comme volume d'accompagnement au Thésaurus international sur les droits des enfants, rédigé aussi par le Centre international pour le développement de l'enfant de l'UNICEF. Son but est de fournir une explication détaillée de la terminologie spécialisée utilisée dans le secteur des droits des enfants et en particulier dans la Convention relative aux droits de l'enfant. Même si aussi bien le Glossaire que le Thésaurus sont conçus comme des outils de traitement de l'information à l'usage des spécialistes de l'information, il est souhaitable que le Glossaire soit aussi utile pour faciliter une meilleure compréhension de la terminologie concernant les droits des enfants par un public générale.

Published: 2000 Innocenti Publications
The International Children’s Rights Thesaurus consists of a core of several hundred terms that express the specific rights and concerns of the Convention on the Rights of the Child together with a number of more general terms that set these issues in their economic and social context. The criterion for inclusion of descriptors in the Thesaurus is their usefulness for indexing and retrieving documents on issues covered by the CRC.

Anne Di Lauro

Published: 2000 Innocenti Publications
Un tesauro es un "vocabulario controlado" sobre una temática específica -en este caso los derechos del niño- que permite a quienes manejan la información utilizar un lenguaje común, "controlado", para procesar informaciones sobre un tema dado, lo cual a su vez posibilita la recuperación exacta y completa de informaciones y el intercambio a nivel internacional. Este Tesauro está diseñado para que se use junto con el Glosario sobre los Derechos del Niño, que proporciona una guía detallada a la terminología especializada relativa a los derechos del niño y, de manera particular, a la terminología que contiene la CDN. Además, permite ver los términos relacionados de una misma temática (términos generales, términos específicos).

Return on Knowledge: How international development agencies are collaborating to deliver impact through knowledge, learning, research and evidence

Effective collaboration around knowledge management and organizational learning is a key contributor to improving the impact of international development work for the world’s most vulnerable people. But how can it be proven? With only 10 years from the target date for the Sustainable Development Goals, nine of the world’s most influential agencies set out to show to the connection between the use of evidence, knowledge and learning and a better quality of human life. This book – a synthesis of stories, examples and insights that demonstrate where and how these practices have made a positive impact on development programming – is the result of the Multi-Donor Learning Partnership (MDLP), a collective effort to record the ways each of these organizations have leveraged intentional, systematic and resourced approaches to knowledge management and organizational learning in their work.

Gender Solutions: Capturing the impact of UNICEF’s gender equality evidence investments (2014–2021)

UNICEF has undertaken hundreds of gender evidence generation activities, supporting programmatic action, advocacy work and policymaking. The Gender Solutions project aims to draw together the knowledge, innovations and impacts of gender evidence work conducted by UNICEF offices since the first UNICEF Gender Action Plan was launched in 2014. A desk review identified over 700 gender-related UNICEF research, evaluation and data evidence generation activities since 2014. Twenty-five outputs were shortlisted because of their high quality and (potential for) impact and three were selected as Gender Evidence Award winners by an external review panel. By capturing the impact of this broad body of work, Gender Solutions aims to showcase UNICEF’s evidence investments, reward excellence and inform the rollout of the UNICEF Gender Policy 2021–2030 and Action Plan 2022–2025.

Responsible Innovation in Technology for Children: Digital technology, play and child well-being

Digital experiences can have significant negative impact on children, exposing them to risks or failing to nurture them adequately. Nevertheless, digital experiences also potentially yield enormous benefits for children, enabling them to learn, to create, to develop friendships, and to build worlds. While global efforts to deepen our understanding of the prevalence and impact of digital risks of harm are burgeoning – a development that is both welcome and necessary – less attention has been paid to understanding and optimizing the benefits that digital technology can provide in supporting children’s rights and their well-being. Benefits here refer not only to the absence of harm, but also to creating additional positive value. How should we recognize the opportunities and benefits of digital technology for children’s well-being? What is the relationship between the design of digital experiences – in particular, play-centred design – and the well-being of children? What guidance and measures can we use to strengthen the design of digital environments to promote positive outcomes for children? And how can we make sure that children’s insights and needs form the foundation of our work in this space? These questions matter for all those who design and promote digital experiences, to keep children safe and happy, and enable positive development and learning. These questions are particularly relevant as the world shifts its attention to emerging digital technologies and experiences, from artificial intelligence (AI) to the metaverse, and seeks to understand their impact on people and society. To begin to tackle these questions, UNICEF and the LEGO Group initiated the Responsible Innovation in Technology for Children (RITEC) project in partnership with the Young and Resilient Research Centre at Western Sydney University; the CREATE Lab at New York University; the Graduate Center, City University of New York; the University of Sheffield; the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the Digital Child; and the Joan Ganz Cooney Center. The research is funded by the LEGO Foundation. The partnership is an international, multi-stakeholder and cross-sectoral collaboration between organizations that believe the design and development of digital technology should support the rights and well-being of children as a primary objective – and that children should have a prominent voice in making this a reality. This project’s primary objective is to develop, with children from around the world, a framework that maps how the design of children’s digital experiences affects their well-being, and to provide guidance as to how informed design choices can promote positive well-being outcomes.
