We express our appreciation for the achievements of the past year. Many important decisions on the future course of UNICEF have been taken.
Germany supports the equity- based approach which UNICEF has adopted under Tony Lake’s leadership. This approach provides a more efficient way for UNICEF to contribute to reaching the MDGs. We agree with the Executive Director that a sharper focus on equity is proving essential to delivering results for children.
