UNICEF works in emergencies, post-conflict situations, during peacebuilding and long term rehabilitation after emergencies. UNICEF’s work in these situations is based upon the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and focuses on the most vulnerable children. In doing so, UNICEF works with national and local governments, aid organisations, private sector organisations, international and local partners. Besides the direct provision of emergency relief, UNICEF seeks to assist in shaping policies so that sustainable solutions for children can be found.
