Background and Justification
UNICEF strongly believes in the power of partnerships and collaborative efforts and has a rich history of working with the private sector. At a global level UNICEF works closely with multi-national corporations, national companies and small- to medium-sized businesses to identify, design and implement alliances that leverage the strengths of the corporate sector on behalf of the world’s children. In turn, UNICEF supports companies that aim to strengthen their commitment towards a positive contribution to the world’s communities and environment and provide support to achieve their CSR and business objectives. Advocacy and communication will have to play a prominent role in building partnerships to furthering the interests of Omani children. UNICEF views partnerships building linked to advocacy and communication as a continuum where considerable overlap exists. Extensive use of the internet and mobile technologies offer new opportunities and further blur the lines between advocacy and communication.

Based on the mapping exercise done in 2017, potential partners will need to be approached to explore different areas of partnership and promotion for a common cause.
