UNICEF, OECS sign new partnership agreement, the focus on Human and Social Development Strategy


by Kevon Browne

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): UNICEF and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Tuesday signed a renewed Partnership Agreement aimed at directly impacting the lives of children and young people across the OECS Member States.

According to a release from the OECS, the agreement will support the OECS Human and Social Development Strategy, focusing on Child Protection, Social Protection, Inclusive Education, Youth Engagement, and Climate and Resilience.

UNICEF Representative for the Eastern Caribbean, Pieter Bult, addressed the importance of his organisation’s close relationship with the OECS Commission. He said it is essential that whatever is replicated in the OECS is done throughout the rest of the region.



The OECS Commission Director General Dr. Didacus Jules echoed the sentiments of Bult, sharing that the new OECS-UNICEF partnership extends beyond the OECS Member States to include British Overseas Territories as Associated Members.

Additionally, the commission will focus on increased visibility of UNICEF-funded programmes within the region, including beneficiary testimonials and a documentary highlighting key milestones and successes of the long-standing partnership.
