For every child, A safe environment
The Rohingya refugee crisis was one of the largest and fastest-growing humanitarian catastrophes in recent memory. Arriving in Bangladesh in the hundreds of thousands, their needs were massive and ranged from psychosocial support to access to basic social services for water, health, nutrition and education. Together with the international community, UNICEF and its partners are responding to these needs at scale.
UNICEF is committed to results-based management to strengthen its ability to deliver and demonstrate results for children within the Rohingya crisis response. Guided by the Core Commitments for Children (CCC) in humanitarian action, UNICEF works with partners to ensure that the situation of children and women is monitored and analyzed; a system for performance monitoring is established and functional with a focus on accountability to the affected population; and that humanitarian action is regularly assessed against CCCs, policies, guidelines and UNICEF quality and accountability standards.
