The policy was revised through extensive consultation among UNICEF staff and partners, and establishes the basis for UNICEF programme cooperation with governments and other partners to promote equality between girls and boys.  It defines the core standards of performance that are expected, and sets out the organizational mechanisms that will help bring about results over time. The policy addresses UNICEF’s contributions to the development and equal rights of girls and boys through its cooperation both in regular situations and through humanitarian preparedness, response and recovery. Furthermore, the policy addresses the responsibilities and expectations of UNICEF staff at all levels.
