UNICEF works with and for disadvantaged children and adolescents across 21 countries and territories in Europe and Central Asia where we have country programmes. We also have programmes to respond to the needs of refugee and migrant women and children in Austria, Germany, Greece and Italy, as well as engagement with institutions across many more countries to uphold the rights of children.  


In line with our mandate, shaped by the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we work to ensure that no child is left out of economic and social progress

Our work across the region

We advocate for greater investment in the well-being of children and adolescents – the region’s greatest asset.
We support the strengthening of national systems that safeguard the well-being of all children and adolescents.
We strengthen collaboration across sectors that are crucial for child well-being, from health and education to child protection and social welfare. We also strengthen the skills of service providers to deliver child-focused assistance.
We demonstrate what works, supporting cutting-edge research, innovative approaches and awareness-raising among policymakers and the public.
We support monitoring the situation for children and progress so governments can be held to account for the commitments they have made to children. 
We work with partners to leverage and mobilize greater resources for all children and adolescents.
