UNICEF works in some of the worlds toughest places, to reach the worlds 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.
For every child, a champion
The fundamental mission of UNICEF is to promote the rights of every child, everywhere, in everything the organization does in programmes, in advocacy and in operations. The equity strategy, emphasizing the most disadvantaged and excluded children and families, translates this commitment to children's rights into action. For UNICEF, equity means that all children have an opportunity to survive, develop and reach their full potential, without discrimination, bias or favoritism. To the degree that any child has an unequal chance in life in its social, political, economic, civic and cultural dimensions her or his rights are violated. There is growing evidence that investing in the health, education and protection of a society most disadvantaged citizens addressing inequity not only will give all children the opportunity to fulfill their potential but also will lead to sustained growth and stability of countries. This is why the focus on equity is so vital. It accelerates progress towards realizing the human rights of all children, which is the universal mandate of UNICEF, as outlined by the Convention on the Rights of the Child, while also supporting the equitable development of nations.
With over five years after the fall of former regime, heightened uncertainty, political rifts, conflicts, displacement and insecurity continued to mark the political and economic transition in Libya. The UN strived to support the country with its transition to the democracy and establishment of a Government of National Accord (GNA). Libya is facing a growing humanitarian situation with the estimated 2.44million people in need of assistance. UNICEF Libya has scaled up its programme to respond to the humanitarian needs of conflict- affected children and their families.
As UNICEF is scaling up its interventions, the growth in size and scope of the Libyan Country Office calls for strong information management systems and functions to complement programme specialists and implementing partners to ensure accountability of results. The Information Management Officer will also support the country office in improving the quality and availability of program data in evidence based programming. The function will also strengthen internal UNICEF LCO information management by putting in place appropriate information management systems.
