A Local Governance Approach to Programming: Guidance for achieving multisectoral results through working with local governments.

This guidance supports sector and cross-cutting results by setting out a strategic approach to UNICEF work with local governments in rural and urban settings together with or in support of local sectoral actors’ children. This guidance contributes to the realization of children’s rights by supporting local government, together with other local actors, to respond to the needs and priorities of children, adolescents and their families inclusively and equitably. The guidance outcomes contribute to achieving those goals set out in the UNICEF Strategic Plan, 2018–2021.
