Business impacts children everywhere. Children interact daily with the private sector – as family members of workers, employees, consumers, and community members affected by operations and supply chains. Interactive, data-driven and free to use, the Children’s Rights and Business Atlas is an online tool that provides downloadable country data and aggregate scores across 195 countries. Jointly developed by Global Child Forum and UNICEF, the Atlas contains more than 150 indicators measuring legal framework, government enforcement and outcomes, on children’s rights in the workplace, marketplace, community and environment.
The Atlas is designed to help business and government stakeholders better understand a wide range of potential and actual business impacts on children through the use of publicly available data, analysis and practical guidance. The purpose of this session is to demonstrate how business stakeholders can use the Atlas to identify the actions needed to improve respect for children’s rights, and how government stakeholders can use the Atlas to improve their action and commitment to business-related children’s rights concerns.

UNICEF works in the world’s toughest places to reach the most disadvantaged children and adolescents – and to protect the rights of every child, everywhere. Across 190 countries and territories, we do whatever it takes to help children survive, thrive and fulfill their potential, from early childhood through adolescence. And we never give up.
