- For every child, every opportunity5.56 MB
For children across the globe, 2022 was a year fraught with difficult challenges and intractable crises.
Millions suffered the consequences of floods, storms and droughts linked to climate change, struggled to access essential services amidst violent conflict, or continued to feel the socioeconomic impacts of the pandemic.
These were among the factors which led to a global nutrition crisis, with 45 million children under 5 suffering from wasting. Many communities saw the costs of basic food and goods skyrocket, pushing more families into poverty.
For more than 75 years, UNICEF has worked to protect children during such challenging times. And in 2022, with more children in need than at any other time in our organization’s history, we had to be at our best.
Guided by our new 2022-2025 Strategic Plan, UNICEF continued to deliver lifesaving and life-changing results for children with a focus on reaching the most vulnerable. The results presented in this report were achieved through the dedication and courage of our nearly 17,000 staff working across more than 190 countries and territories.
