Research Programmes

UNICEF Innocenti provides evidence for action to drive change for children and young people every day, across the globe.

Here are UNICEF Innocenti's current research programmes and projects:

Child rights and protection

Every child has the right to grow up in a safe and inclusive environment

COVID-19 and children

UNICEF Innocenti has mobilized a rapid research response in line with UNICEF’s global response to provide the evidence needed to scale up rapid assessment, develop urgent mitigating strategies in programming and advocacy, and to prepare interventions to respond to the medium and longer-term consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. The office has also produced a Children and COVID-19 Research Library, which collects research from around the world on COVID-19 and its impacts on children and adolescents.

Humanitarian Research

Every child has the right to an equitable chance in life

Building knowledge and evidence on how best to meet children’s needs in emergencies is a pressing challenge. UNICEF Innocenti is building evidence to better support UNICEF’s response to humanitarian situations.
