The Best of UNICEF Research, now in its third year, showcases and recognizes high-quality, high-impact research being done in the organization. The intention of the project is to communicate that UNICEF is often engaged in supporting a range of cutting-edge research to improve the lives of children. Yet this is often poorly known. The ‘Best of UNICEF Research’ initiative aims to change this perception. This publication presents summaries of twelve of the projects submitted to the 2015 Best of UNICEF Research competition which illustrate the range of research being undertaken.
