The UNICEF Ethics Procedure, as of the 1st April, 2021, is binding on all UNICEF staff undertaking or commissioning research, evaluations and data collection and analysis involving human subjects or analyzing sensitive secondary data.

UNICEF’s strategic agenda to harness the power of evidence to drive change for children makes ethical conduct in evidence generation1 an organizational imperative. Ethical reflection and conduct as part of everyday evidence generation is necessary if we are to engage appropriately with all our stakeholders, including with the hardest to reach, the furthest from help and the most excluded.

These procedures establish minimum standards for UNICEF evaluations and ensure ethical oversight and accountability.
