Closing date: 23 May 2018
UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
Background & Rationale
The SOWC report team is looking for a consultant researcher, with a background in children’s nutrition and its impacts, to help produce UNICEF’s Flagship report The State of the World’s Children 2019. Published since 1980, the report outlines priority areas for future advocacy, policy and programme work. It aims to influence policy direction by identifying key issues for children and placing them on the global agenda; providing a basis for UNICEF’s global policy development and targeted advocacy; building UNICEF’s reputation for knowledge and expertise; offering an opportunity to convene key stakeholders; and providing an umbrella theme for UNICEF’s HQ, Country Offices and National Committees. The report aims to equip UNICEF Regional and Country offices with latest data, evidence and advocacy tools to drive policy change at the national level.
The consultant researcher will work with the SOWC report team to develop the first draft of the 2019 edition. Under the guidance and direct supervision of the (P-4) Editor, the researcher will develop 3 to 4 background papers using literature reviews and publicly available databases in relations to topic such as maternal and child nutrition; nutrition policy and programme development; and the impacts of disease, care, food, urbanization and climate change on children’s nutrition.
