To implement the Country Programme, UNICEF relies on both internal and external financial resources. The Partnerships and Resource Mobilization Unit, under the leadership of the Representative, supports the Country Office in developing and maintaining partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders (bilateral, multilateral and the private sector) to ensure that adequate resources are available to implement the Country Programme and reach results for children.

The Country Office is now working on a new Partnership and Resource Mobilization Strategy to support the new Country Programme and address the large, complex humanitarian and development needs in Mali. Specialized support is therefore needed to enable the office to develop and boost implementation of the Partnership and Resource Mobilization efforts with the goal to be visionary, strategic, innovative and for results at scale.
