UNICEF Consultancy to develop a child friendly version of the UNICEF Country Programme Document Jobs in Uganda

How can you make a difference?

  • UNICEF Uganda is seeking to recruit a consultant to develop a child friendly version of the CPD 2021-2025.

  • The child friendly CPD will be derived from the main CPD document, that will be converted into an easy to read, interpret, and enjoyable document for children, adolescents and young people.

  • It will also integrate and highlight children’s voices collected, through a series of consultations in 2019.

  • Nested within Uganda’s National Child Participation Strategy (2017–2022), this exercise sets out to ensure that children are involved and are knowledgeable about the work UNICEF will be doing while supporting the Government of Uganda over the next five years.

  • The child friendly CPD also provides a platform to amplify the voices of children across all spheres of decision making that have an impact on their lives, starting with the UNICEF Country Programme Document (CPD) 2021 -2025.

  • The target audience for the Child Friendly CPD is children aged 6 – 18 years.


  • The UNICEF Uganda CPD 2021-2025 was developed through a consultative and participatory process with national and international partners including children.

  • The new Country Programme (CP) provides an opportunity for the Uganda Country Office to prioritize results, align programmatic engagement to the UNICEF strategic plan and ensure that the office is ‘fit for purpose’ to deliver commitments made for the children in a fast-changing landscape of population growth, refugee influx, health emergencies and urbanization.

    The development of the CPD 2021-2025 followed an extensive and in-depth Mid-term review in 2018. The key principles to which the CPD process adhered to included:

  • Streamlining the process: building on the in depth and participatory Mid-Term Review in 2018

  • Alignment: with the Government of Uganda National Development Plan (NDP III), the UN Sustainable Development Cooperation Framework (UNSDCF) and the UNICEF Strategic Plan.

  • Evidence based: the CPD will build on the findings of the country programme evaluation, as well as studies and data from the 2019 Situation Analysis.

  • Participation: ensuring that the process is participatory, inclusive and transparent, and that all key stakeholders are engaged throughout the process.
