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 connected world
The Information and Communication Technology Division (ICTD) of UNICEF covers the development, implementation and management of innovative, effective and secure IT integrated business solutions and technology infrastructure in support of the Organization’s strategic objectives.
UNICEF is working on a project to overhaul UNICEF’s global digital engagement and communications. This includes replacing our current technologies, establishing digital governance and building the appropriate capacities among our personnel globally to manage and adapt to the ever-changing digital landscape.
As part of this digital transformation project, UNICEF is implementing a new CMS, that should be the platform that meets the needs of the external audience (supports the requirements of the new digital content strategy) and internal audience (a user-friendly multilingual and multisite to publish, govern and iterate nimbly).
UNICEF chose Drupal 8 as the new web CMS technology and Acquia as the hosting platform. UNICEF legacy web ecosystem contains more than 200 different websites (global unicef.org, country office & regional office websites - called ROCO sites - and microsites) that will be revamped into the new web CMS.
Currently the new platform is being developed/enhanced. This new implementation is using Acquia Cloud Enterprise to host a Drupal 8 multisite and multilingual implementation.
