The Core commitments for children in humanitarian action – the CCCs – constitute UNICEF’s central policy on how to uphold the rights of children affected by humanitarian crisis. They are a framework for humanitarian action, around which UNICEF seeks to engage with partners. The intent of the updated CCCs remains to promote predictable, effective and timely collective humanitarian action, and to clearly outline the areas in which UNICEF can best contribute to results. Initially developed in 1998 and reviewed in 2004, this latest edition of the CCCs brings UNICEF’s humanitarian policy in line with evolving humanitarian contexts, including humanitarian reform and the cluster approach, informed by field-based evidence and practice.
