About the course

Partnerships between UNICEF and both national and international civil society organizations play a vital role in delivering results for children.

Every year, UNICEF disburses USD 1 billion in cash and provides almost USD 500 million in programme supplies to about 4,000 CSO partners in countries all over the world. CSO partners also contribute notable financial, intellectual, human and other resources to joint programmes.

This e-course has been developed for all UNICEF staff and CSO partners who are involved in partner selection, programme development, and activity implementation. This e-course supports the mutual commitment of both UNICEF and CSO partners to quality programme delivery, clear accountabilities, transparency, and ultimately results for children.
