  • Promote predictable, effective and timely collective humanitarian action
  • A framework based on norms and standards, around which UNICEF seeks to engage with partners
cccs core commitments for children

What is new – Humanitarian Action

CCCs: Core Commitments for Children
  • Humanitarian Action vs. emergency
    • reflect globally accepted framework of preparedness-response phases and early recovery approach


Preparedness is part of every Programme and Operational Commitment

  • The first Programme Commitment is to sort out coordination
  • Monitoring done by EWEA;
  • Preparedness activities need to go into AWPs

What is new – Humanitarian Reform

  • Humanitarian reform has changed the way we work as humanitarian agencies:
    • Cluster approach
    • Financing
    • Humanitarian leadership
    • Partnerships

What is new – Results orientation

  • Results-oriented, with clear Strategic Results, Commitments and Benchmarks for each sector
    • Strategic results articulate goals aligned to global standards to which UNICEF contributes.
    • Commitments and Benchmarks are defined as results based on recent evidence and best practices.
    • Fulfillment depends on many factors, including availability of partners and resources, both human and financial

What is UNICEF committing to?

  • Ensure the situation of children and women is monitored
  • Respond in defined programme sectors where resources and partners allow
  • Advocate with governments and other partners to ensure that the benchmarks are achieved
  • Ensure minimum preparedness in defined programme sectors and within UNICEF

What is UNICEF’s role?

  • UNICEF’s role varies depending on context and who has comparative advantage. May include:
    • promoting CCCs through advocacy,
    • leadership,
    • cluster roles (lead and/or member),
    • Role of UNICEF within humanitarian country teams, etc.

What are UNICEF’s cluster commitments?

  • Ensure effective leadership and interagency coordination
  • Always on preparedness (clarify UNICEF and partners cluster responsibility)
  • Articulated under 1st commitment for Nutrition, Health, WASH, Child Protection and Education
  • UNICEF’s role in country often mirrors global role, but varies according to capacity and context

When are the CCCs used?

  • In all countries on:
    • Preparedness
    • Situation monitoring of women and children
  • In both rapid onset, slow onset and protracted humanitarian situations

Objective of CCC Performance Monitoring

  • To support the CO in managing performance in humanitarian action in line with the revised CCCs
    • In coordination with operational partners
    • In support of coordination across humanitarian system, especially clusters
    • Where possible linking to/ building up national monitoring and reporting systems
  • To reinforce accountability for CCCs at UNICEF CO, RO and HQ levels.
what is the c cc pm system
What is the CCC PM system?
  • The CCC PM system is to be adapted to each country context
  • The CCC PM system is a logically connected:
    • results framework aligned to CCC benchmarks
    • a set of data collection methods and tools
      • feeding into key planning and management processes
      • framed in an M&E plan
    • processed for managers and decision-makers thru ‘dashboards’ pulling in data from different systems (latter not yet developed)

How does UNICEF fund the CCCs in response

  • Reprogram Regular Resources within the country programme budget, or reprogram Other Resources;
  • Request internal loan – Emergency Programme Fund
  • Apply to CERF
  • Appeals – IND, Flash
  • CAP (inter-agency) and HAR (UNICEF)

How do the CCCs contribute to UNICEF’s equity agenda?

  • Guided by the humanitarian principle of humanity, basing assistance on need;
  • By ensuring that the needs of the most vulnerable are highlighted by needs assessments
  • By ensuring that vulnerable populations impacted by humanitarian emergencies receive a package of high impact, evidence based interventions
  • By employing service delivery modes (e.g., mass campaigns, support to community health workers) that have been proven to reach the most vulnerable
  • By ensuring monitoring of coverage of these interventions through the CCC PM
