UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s 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 United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) responds to an average of over 285 humanitarian situations each year, ensuring that resources are in place to support millions of children affected by conflict or disaster.
Within UNICEF, the Risk Analysis and Preparedness Section (RAPS) supports Regional Offices (RO) and Country Offices (CO) in ensuring that UNICEF is prepared to respond to all types of emergencies that create humanitarian needs for children and those who care for them. As part of this, RAPS directly monitors, and supports RO and CO in monitoring, a wide variety of potential hazards. Many of these hazards pose different levels of risk at different times of the year. With tis in mind, RAPS will develop a Seasonal and Hazard Calendar to support risk monitoring and analysis that in turn triggers emergency preparedness activities.
