Unicef’s new Minimum Standards for Community Engagement

A founding goal of our Movement has been to raise the profile of Community-led Development in mainstream development discourse. Unicef has taken a major step in that direction by developing and launching standards and indicators for community engagement in its programs.

We were delighted to welcome Rania Elessawi, Communication for Development Specialist (Planning and Monitoring) at Unicef as our guest speaker on today’s monthly MCLD global call. Her presentation begins at 10:13 in the recording below.

Also featured on the call is a brief summary of second call on adapting CLD processes in the time of Covid-19 (48:32), and updates from East (55:03), Southern (1:02:36) and West Africa (1:06:50) including our newest chapter MCLD-Nigeria (1:13:28) and Mexico (1:18:00).
