UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
For every child, [Result]
Background Context and Rationale:
At a time where the future of work is more unpredictable due to the increased automation of the workforce and the dynamics at play in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, only 1 in 4 young people in South Asia are estimated to be on track to gain secondary-level skills necessary for success in the global economy. While great strides have been made in achieving universal primary education, South Asia is still home to 28 million out-of-school-children (OOSC) â€“ 10 million at primary level, and 18 million at lower secondary level â€“ and 45% of primary-aged children are not learning the basics of reading and math. The result is a significant skills and employment challenge â€“ a skills gap which contributes to high levels of unemployment for higher education graduates and large informal economies where young workers are in vulnerable employment.
To respond to this critical economic and social development challenge, UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia will co-host with the Global Business Coalition-Education (GBC- Education), a South Asia Youth Skills and Solution Forum from 29-31 October 2019, in Mumbai, India. Over 200 delegates from South Asia nations, speakers from global and regional business leaders and senior representation from UNICEF, as well as media, civil society and private sector will attend the forum. The forum builds on the work of the Generation Unlimited Initiative.
GBC-Education’s “Youth Skills and Innovation Report”, as well as UNICEF reports, “The Evidence-Base for Developing Skills in Youth to Succeed in the Evolving South Asian Economy” and “Voices of Youth” will inform the discussions at the forum.
UNICEF seeks a consultant to support the production of branding, communications and condensed versions of research materials to be showcased for the forum.
In addition to proposing the branding and logo for the South Asia Youth Skills and Solution Forum, the consultant will be required to propose and produce the design concept, layout, and web- and print-ready versions of communication and advocacy products for the forum, in line with UNICEF and GBC- Education branding guidelines. The consultant will be required to submit all final design and editable files to UNICEF including original illustrations and infographics to UNICEF.
