Organization: UN Children’s Fund
Country: Switzerland
Closing date: 07 Apr 2019

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, hope

UNICEF has a long history of working with business to deliver results for children. In recent years UNICEF’s private sector partnerships have become more multifaceted and include powerful and influential initiatives and platforms involving business that are actively shaping global and business agendas, priorities and investments. Global, regional and national platforms can serve as catalysts and accelerators for reaching, influencing, mobilizing and partnering with the private sector to achieve better results for children and substantially support the ambitious goals of the UNICEF Strategic Plan. The Multi-Stakeholders Partnerships Unit (MSP) within the PFP division in Geneva, aims to provide organization-wide leadership on the development of strategic partnerships and engagement strategies with select multi-stakeholder platforms and initiatives involving business to accelerate UNICEF’s partnership, advocacy and programmatic objectives. In accordance with its mission, the unit is looking to identify select platforms that strategically align with UNICEF’s priorities and that may provide engagement opportunities for high potential value creation.

How can you make a difference?

Under the leadership of the Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships Unit within PFP, the objective of this consultancy is to provide a landscape mapping of strategic global and regional multi-stakeholder platforms and initiatives involving business in relation to organizational priorities. The mapping will not be a comprehensive list of multi-stakeholder platforms involving business but will identify those that most strategically align with UNICEF’s priorities and that offer higher potential for engagement opportunities.

As part of this project, a landscape analysis will also be drafted to include main conclusions from the exercise and recommendations for potential engagements at global and regional levels (including priority countries e.g. China, the US) as well as insights on trends from the landscape exercise.

MAIN TASKS:

  • Review of strategic documents and background;
  • Lead internal consultation with UNICEF stakeholders in relation to organizational priorities (to be facilitated by the Multi-Stakeholder Partnerships team);
  • Develop a draft mapping plan, to be validated by the MSP team;
  • Conduct and in-depth landscape mapping and analysis;
  • Recalibrate the mapping and analysis based on results from Country stocktaking exercise survey and in alignment with the Platform engagement tool (both to be developed in parallel and outside of this consultancy);
  • Develop presentation of the draft mapping and draft analysis, to be shared with the MSP team for final inputs and validation;
  • Submit final deliverables by 31 July 2019.
  • DELIVERABLES:

  • Multi-Stakeholder Platforms Landscape Mapping: delivered in the form of an excel file, expected to include amongst others:
