RESEARCH FACILITATION

facebook twitter linkedin google+ reddit print email

Research is conducted by virtually all UNICEF offices around the world to drive programmes and policy advocacy for children. Innocenti’s mandate includes support of UNICEF’s capacity to generate and make use of research on children in programming and advocacy. Innocenti works on the development of quality standards, analytical tools, and mechanisms to enhance knowledge sharing and broker good research practice. Research supported by UNICEF takes place across a wide range of contexts, follows thematic priorities defined in the Strategic Plan 2014-2017 and accommodates varying levels of research capacity.

Innocenti contributes to strengthening overarching minimum standards for all UNICEF research by improving ethical standards of research on children, improving quality assurance measures in all stages of the research cycle, producing methodological briefs and research syntheses, granting recognition to quality research efforts, and support of capacity building from research design and methods through to research uptake and impact.

Adolescent Research Briefs

The world is home to 1.2 billion adolescents: the largest cohort of this age-group in history.

Developed with Columbia University and experts from the Lancet Commission on Adolescent Health and Wellbeing this series of briefs provides a much needed review of contemporary research methodologies for adolescent well-being in low- and middle-income countries , covering: indicators and data sources, ethics, research with disadvantaged and vulnerable groups, participatory research, measurement of the social and structural determinants of adolescent health, and adolescent economic strengthening interventions.
