5 Current commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions are unlikely sufficient to stay. within the globally agreed maximum temperature increase of 2 C1 relative to the pre. industrial level If the required additional efforts are delayed another 15 years this will. become even more difficult and expensive Therefore the global community must step. up its ambitions and embark on low, carbon socio economic development Evidence shows that energy at household level. This has major implications both for in the education health and water sectors as. today s children and for the next well as for infrastructure services has a great. generations whose leadership on influence on development results for children. mitigation efforts will be critical in the UNICEF 2015. coming decades Paradoxically many, children in developing countries have. little or no access to modern energy services and this impedes their well being in many. ways especially with regard to their health education and safety. 6 The most disadvantaged children are, the most likely to live in poor and Household air pollution is linked to 534 000 child. degrading environments Household deaths under 5 years old from acute respiratory. air pollution is a major concern Other infections in 2012 WHO 2014a Ambient air. concerns include ambient air pollution pollution is also seriously affecting children. particularly in urban areas risks from with 127 000 child deaths under 5 years old. chemicals waste polluted water and reported for 2012 WHO 2014b. the lack of green and clean areas for, children to play safely. 7 UNICEF brings multiple strengths and comparative advantages to take action for children. on climate and the environment Our communication and advocacy capacity along with. solid data and analysis are crucial assets in this respect Using its network of Country. Offices and National Committees UNICEF can reach out and work with children. governments civil society and the private sector in all countries UNICEF s Country. Programmes are effective vehicles to incorporate and address children s needs in terms. of environmental sustainability as already reflected in a growing number of countries. around the world UNICEF will build on these strengths to enhance its engagement. 8 The objective of this strategic framework is to significantly strengthen UNICEF s policy. programmes advocacy research and engagement on environmental sustainability to. deliver better results for children especially the most disadvantaged. Priorities, 9 UNICEF is committed to increase its contribution to environmental sustainability given.
both the importance of the issue to children and the global commitment to the. 1The Alliance of Small Island States AOSIS is calling for the inclusion of below 1 5 C as a long term. temperature goal, Division of Data Research and Policy Approved by UNICEF Executive Director 3 December 2015. Sustainable Development Goals Five priorities have been identified for the initial period. 10 Priority 1 Strengthen UNICEF policy and guidance on environmental sustainability as a. cross cutting issue, UNICEF will further develop guidance on environmental sustainability in the Situational. Analysis and on mainstreaming environmental sustainability in all UNICEF outcome areas. including in relation to gender humanitarian and innovations Methodology will be. developed to assess climate change risks for the UNICEF outcome areas and to. incorporate climate resilience Guidance on environmentally sustainable approaches. such as the use of sustainable energy materials and equipment to be used during. UNICEF programme implementation including in humanitarian settings will be. developed A toolbox on how to access global funding for climate and environment for. child specific interventions will also be made available. UNICEF will strengthen monitoring and reporting on environmental sustainability. including through an annual progress report Consistent with the commitments of the UN. system as a whole UNICEF will improve the sustainability performance of its programmes. by developing UNICEF s Environmental and Social Standards Policy and Procedures. Headquarters will step up technical support to field offices and knowledge exchange. about environmental sustainability, 11 Priority 2 Strengthen the inclusion of environmental sustainability in UNICEF. programmes, Building on the guidance developed under priority 1 UNICEF will undertake analysis on. environmental sustainability issues affecting children to inform Country Programme. development sector specific interventions and humanitarian operations Climate. resilience will be incorporated in relevant UNICEF interventions and programme. outcome areas and so will the application and promotion of environmentally sustainable. approaches materials and equipment The UNICEF Environmental and Social Standards. will be piloted and gradually rolled out Subject to country specific needs and availability. of resources UNICEF will design and implement climate and environmental interventions. for children In the context of climate change the focus will be on adaptation Limited but. strategic opportunities to engage in climate change mitigation and low carbon. development will also be considered, With regard to other environmental issues addressing air pollution will be given high.
priority because it is a major contributor to under 5 mortality UNICEF will also assess. possible country programme action on issues related to the extractive industry waste in. urban areas and exposure to harmful substances Activities may include data collection. analysis technical assistance to governments capacity development of staff as well as. local partners policy advocacy awareness raising training education and supporting. youth and their communities to take action, 12 Priority 3 Advocate for full recognition and inclusion of children in the policy discourse. on environmental sustainability, UNICEF will deepen the evidence base via data collection and analyses on important. topics such as climate change adaptation DRR the reduction of greenhouse gas. Division of Data Research and Policy Approved by UNICEF Executive Director 3 December 2015. emissions air pollution and environmental sustainability awareness and education. UNICEF will step up global regional and country level advocacy through involvement in. international and national policy processes related to climate change and environment. social media campaigns and strengthened child and youth engagement UNICEF will invest. in awareness raising and capacity development of practitioners to address children s. environmental needs UNICEF will support children and adolescents to strengthen their. awareness knowledge skills and engagement to promote environmental sustainability. among their peers and in their community, 13 Priority 4 Strengthen opportunities for children s development and well being to. benefit from environmental sustainability related public and private finance. UNICEF will engage and work with public and private partners and children to develop. innovative approaches and partnerships for children as beneficiaries of climate and. environmental related finance This includes pursuing accreditation to the Green Climate. Fund and accessing other major sources of climate finance and developing in house. capacity and guidance to mobilize funds for climate change adaptation and sustainable. energy for children UNICEF will also support governments to integrate financing for. reduction of climate related risks for children into national and local budgets. 14 Priority 5 Incorporating environmental sustainability management ESM in the. organization, UNICEF will walk the talk on environmental sustainability and systematically integrate. ESM across the organization UNICEF is committed to work towards climate neutrality by. 2020 at the latest This will include issuing policy and guidelines reporting annually on its. environmental footprint identifying and implementing measures to reduce the. environmental footprint of the organization undertaking cost benefit analysis awareness. raising and training offsetting unavoidable greenhouse gas emissions from its facilities. vehicles and air travel and including ESM aspects in audits and evaluations where. relevant Moving forward UNICEF will continue to explore sustainability in its. procurement operations and will consider the creation of a sustainable supplier s. database as well as ISO certification, It is my expectation that the United Nations system reaches full compliance with.
the United Nations Climate Neutral Strategy and becomes effectively climate. neutral by 2020 at the latest To reach this goal I urge all United Nations Agencies. funds and programmes to continue to reduce their climate footprint and report. greenhouse gas emissions annually from this year onwards so as to enable a. complete picture of the climate footprint for the entire United Nations system by. 2015 In addition I encourage all to commit to achieve a net zero climate footprint. climate neutrality by 2020 and consider to accelerate this to be come climate. neutral by the end of 2015 including by reducing emissions in house and offsetting. remaining emissions, Ban Ki Moon Secretary General United Nations. Letter to the CEB members 3 September 2014, Division of Data Research and Policy Approved by UNICEF Executive Director 3 December 2015. 15 Gender disability and ethnicity will be an integral part of all analyses and actions. addressing environmental sustainability issues, Coordination and implementation. 16 The Division of Data Research and Policy DRP will coordinate the implementation of the. strategic framework in close cooperation with the Field Results Group and other divisions. field offices and the National Committees Involvement roles and responsibilities of. divisions and subsequent sections will vary depending on the priority area To the extent. possible existing mechanisms for planning decision making reporting and coordination. will be used, 17 Potential sources of finance will be explored in order to strengthen the required policy. and technical guidance and capacity development and to provide financial support to. country and regional offices to address environmental sustainability. 18 Progress will be monitored and reported through UNICEF s annual reporting on the. benchmarks related to environmental sustainability the Country Office Annual Reports. and the annual reporting on greening UNICEF, 19 In 2017 a review of the implementation of the strategic framework will be undertaken to.
assess progress made and lessons learned This will inform the environmental. sustainability strategic framework for 2018 2021 that will be developed in the context of. the next Strategic Plan, Partnerships, 20 The UNICEF strategic framework on environmental sustainability for children will build on. and catalyze ongoing interventions by UNICEF and other development partners and will. be coordinated through existing coordination mechanisms at global regional and country. level To work effectively on environmental sustainability issues affecting children. UNICEF will strengthen existing partnerships with governments civil society private. sector and youth organizations as well as explore new partnerships.
