Background

Since its creation in 2015, the UNICEF West and Central Africa Gender Unit has been working with regional sector teams and with Country Offices to define the results, strategies and interventions for advancing gender equality and the empowerment of adolescent girls across UNICEF’s key sectors (education, protection, nutrition, WASH, health, HIV). This engagement led to the development of the Investment Case for Adolescent Girls in West and Central Africa in May 2017, with a focus on three key areas: (i) girls’ education and skills building, (ii) protecting girls from violence and marriage and (iii) girls’ health and wellbeing.

The Investment Case for Adolescent Girls sets out the UNICEF vision for how enhanced investments in adolescent girls can be supported to achieve the rights of girls, break the inter-generational transmission of poverty and accelerate socio-economic development in West and Central Africa.

The objective over 2018/19 is to support 8 country offices to co-create a set of strategic assets to articulate and communicate country-relevant strategies and investments. These assets will leverage UNICEF’s expertise in education, child protection, health, WASH, HIV and nutrition and to convene the African Union (AU), Regional Economic Commissions (ECOWAS and ECCAS), governments, the UN, the private sector, civil society and communities to :

  • Make the Case for Investing in Adolescents Girls – advocating with young people, governments and partners for strengthened investments in adolescent girls and calling for more targeted responses and increased young people’s voice and agency within national policies and programming ;
  • Generate Data and Evidence for Scalable Solutions – supporting all partners to generate the required evidence for effective, scalable  and costed solutions, particularly through education, alternative options to child marriage and pathways for girls’ economic empowerment and autonomy ;
  • Catalyze Much Needed investments – maximizing the value-add of partnerships, resources and innovations on gender transformative approaches to impact the lives of adolescent girls ;
  • Engage, Reach and Empower Adolescent Girls – strengthening youth engagement platforms, investing in their leadership potential, and promoting innovative, multi-sectoral programming to reach and empower the most marginalized adolescent girls with relevant services, information and opportunities.
