(a) assist in coordination and data collation and analysis in support of UNICEF’s Global Humanitarian Action for Children appeal

(d) Contribute to analysis for corporate reporting, including the Executive Director’s Annual Report and the Global Annual Results Report (Humanitarian Action); and

(e) Support the development of additional products for use by senior EMOPS and UNICEF management (including the Executive Director and Deputy Executive Directors) during Executive Boards and other high-level events and for resource mobilization and advocacy with donors.

Summary of key functions/accountabilities:
