Operational commitments describe the actions and standards UNICEF commits to to enable programme implementation through effective use of resources and adequate operational support.
Benchmarks describe the performance levels expected against the commitments. They are drawn from global humanitarian standards, including Sphere Standards and the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS). They are aligned with UNICEF’s Emergency Procedures and monitored through the CCCs Operational Monitoring Framework.
Overarching commitment: All UNICEF offices are fit for purpose and personnel know and contribute to the application of the minimum preparedness standards and emergency procedures, to enable the timely delivery of humanitarian assistance by UNICEF and its partners.
