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, Innovation.

Innovation unit at UNICEF has been a driving force behind many successful initiatives. Like in most innovations, the majority of those remain as concepts or as pilots that are required to be learned to minimize chance of repetition and of error. At the same time, there are a few innovations that are successful and have been brought to scale. These should be shared and learned with the intention of further sustaining them and possibly even to take successful innovations to new locations and adjust to other programmes. In order to facilitate this learning, UNICEF launched in 2020 the INVENT platform. INVENT is UNICEF’s global inventory for innovation and T4D projects, it helps focus investments in innovation in line with the organization strategic priorities. INVENT includes innovations of all types: physical product, programming, frugal, innovative financing, data, and digital. INVENT enhances the global visibility of innovative country and regional projects, with the aim of identifying initiatives that have the potential for multi-country and global scale. UNICEF Tanzania has already submitted its catalogue of innovations to INVENT, but some require regular update and there are new interventions that should be catalogued.

Real time data collection efforts are continuous and, to name only a few, WASH, C4D, U-Report and COVID-19 Resource Mobilization pillar regularly require support to create and maintain data collection and visualization tools.
