The Monitoring Results for Equity Systems was developed in 2010 as part of UNICEF’s refocus on equity to ensure that UNICEF is as effective as possible in the protection and promotion of children’s rights. MoRES builds on the existing human rights based approach to programming and is intended to enhance and sharpen country programmes of cooperation for accelerated results for the most disadvantaged children. In particular, MoRES is based on a determinant framework to identify barriers, bottlenecks and enabling factors which either constrain or advance the achievement of desired outcomes for disadvantaged children. MoRES emphasizes strengthening the capacity of government and partners to regularly monitor (emerging trend is every six months to a year) intermediate outcomes (between outputs and higher level outcomes/impact) to enable more effective programme implementation and timely course corrections in plans and strategies at all levels. This briefing note states the MoRES within UNICEF’s Programme Cycle, Levels one to four, and key considerations for the application of MoRES. (Link)
