Best of UNICEF Research and Evaluation 2020: Cross Cutting
Sustainable Development Goals: 9, 16
- SDG 9 - Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
- SDG 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
Every year, UNICEF showcases quality research and evaluations for children through Best of UNICEF Research and Most Influential Evaluations. For 2020, the UNICEF Office of Research – Innocenti and the UNICEF Evaluation Office have joined forces to produce a single publication awarding reports with a high potential for impact on policies and programmes that benefit children.
Submitted by UNICEF offices from around the world, the reports analyse the changing world around us and evaluate progress towards a better world. In the current global political climate, evidence, facts and objective assessment are needed more than ever to help enhance the rights and well-being of the world’s children, and to reimagine a better future for every child.
The Best of UNICEF Research and Evaluation 2020 showcases 18 finalists grouped according to UNICEF's five goal areas, as well as those who cover multiple goals. Download the full report or scroll through summaries of the winning entries below.
