Brief Project Description
The specific objectives of the project are to (i)ensure that development policies and frameworks take the Convention on the Rights of the Child into consideration with respect to basic social services and resource allocation; (ii)increase the integration of child rights priorities and principles in national and sub-national planning processes; (iii)improve the availability and use of data on children for efficient planning and monitoring of the actions to be taken at national and sub-national level, paying particular attention to factors related to HIV/AIDS. The project is implemented through three main Government counterparts: the National Institute of Statistics (INE), The National AIDS Council (CNCS) and the Ministry of Planning and Development (MPD). The activities of the project with each counterpart are as follows: INE: UNICEF provides technical and financial assistance to INE to strengthen its capacity to monitor national and international development targets (national poverty reduction strategy [PARPA], MDGs) and to produce, analyse and disseminate strategic information on the situation of children. Particular focus is given by the project to supporting the use and dissemination of ESDEM, the national demographic and socio-economic database adapted from DevInfo, particularly at the sub-national level. CNCS: UNICEF provides technical and financial support the M&E unit of the CNCS to strengthen the capacity to monitor the national response to the HIV/AIDS pandemic and to support the operationalisation of the M&E framework of the National Strategic Plan to Fight HIV/AIDS. MPD: UNICEF provides financial support to the MPD to strengthen monitoring of progress towards the PARPA targets. UNICEF also works closely with the National Directorate of Research and Studies in order support the production and dissemination of studies providing strategic information on the situation of children and women. The project also contributes to ensuring that strategic information is disseminated in SWAp fora and made available for use by partners in decision making processes and the development and analysis of policies.

UNICEF currently operates in Mozambique within the framework of a five-year Country Programme (CP) of Cooperation with the Government of Mozambique (2002-2006), which is fully aligned with the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) for the same period. The CP is articulated around five programmes: (1) Nutrition and Health; (2) Basic Education; (3) Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Promotion; (4) Special Protection; and (5) Social Policy, Advocacy and Communication. The planned budget for the 2002-2006 CP is US$ 86.3 million, comprising of US$ 36.3 million in core resource (Regular Resources) and US$ 50 million in non-core resource (Other Resources). Other Resources are subject to availability of funds and are raised by UNICEF at global, regional and country level to implement the CP from various sources, including Governments and private sector (National Committee for UNICEF). In addition to RR and OR, UNICEF also receives Emergency Funds to support emergency response activities, which are mainstreamed across all programmes in the CP. UNICEF resources are used in Mozambique according to three broad categories: cash (cash given to Government or Civil Society Organisation to implement the CP), supply (supply procured for the Government and Civil Society Organisations to implement the CP), and Technical Assistance & Staff costs. Cash represents about 55% of the resources used, while supply represents about 20% and technical assistance about 25%. Financial figures reported here include all these three categories and refer to RR, OR and Emergency Funds for the period 2002 to 2006. Details about the specific use of funds can be provided by UNICEF Office in Maputo upon request. In the spirit of alignment and harmonisation, the United Nations Country Team in Mozambique has fully aligned the content and cycle of the new United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) with the PARPA II, developing a three-year framework for 2007-2009. Within this framework, UNICEF developed a new Country Programme of Cooperation with the Government for the period 2007 to 2009. The planned Budget for the three-year new CP is US$ 88.6 million, comprising of US$ 22.6 million RR and US$ 66 million OR. Under the new Country Programme, UNICEF will build upon the strengths of the current CP to support national efforts in the priority areas of Young Child Survival and Development, Basic Education and HIV/AIDS. Two other areas of Child Protection from Violence, Exploitation and Abuse and Policy Advocacy and Partnerships for Children’s Rights will also form the core of the new CP. Particular focus will be given to accelerating activities to support children infected or affected by HIV/AIDS, and also to the piloting of integrated initiatives on 'childfriendly' schools and support to orphans and vulnerable children, aimed at providing sustainable models for national scale-up. The new CP will be implemented by Government line ministries at the national and subnational levels, in partnership with multi-lateral and bilateral partners, NGOs and communities, in order to reduce existing disparities and ensure that the most vulnerable and marginalised children are reached. Details about the new CP will be included in the database starting 1 January 2007.
