UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Fund) is a program run by the United Nations (UN) that works to provide welfare and developmental aid to women and children in developing countries.
UNICEF And The World Bank
UNICEF and the World Bank work in partnership so as to ensure that there is an easy flow of funds whenever there is a case of an emergency or a conflict. This collaboration between UNICEF and the World Bank is beneficial in increasing the effectiveness of funding and also helping countries in working to prevent, or recover from, emergencies.
Open Development Technology Alliance (ODTA)
The World Bank launched a platform named the Open Development Technology Alliance (ODTA). This platform provides a platform to allow citizens to voice their concerns and offers feedback regarding public services. ODTA directly supports the World Bank by taking a hold on the platform Zunia, which allows its users to share general posts, events, and stories from around the world.
The ODTA provides a platform for the development and public exposure of information and has all the technology tools required to make sure that the government is held answerable for all the services that they provide to the public. Since the ODTA supports the operations taken into consideration by the World Bank, they help engage with communities so that information about people in need can be spread across the globe.

Strategies Of The World Bank
The World Bank Group is hosting twin goals, the Sustainable Development Goals, and the 2030 Development Agenda. These aim to address the challenges of the world, like climate change or epidemics, that have an adverse effect on the world’s poor. It also aims at fighting poverty and improving the living standards of people in developing countries.
Role Of UNICEF
All these collaborations are very helpful in UNICEF being able to reach the disaster-prone areas, like that of regions affected by tsunamis, and immediately start work to provide relief to the survivors. UNICEF helps the survivors by providing them with clean drinking water and sanitation facilities. Apart from these, UNICEF also provides immunizations and supplementary food to the people affected.
UNICEF helps in rebuilding the tsunami-affected areas by helping in reconstruction services like sanitation, food and water supply, education, and increasing security and preparing people in case there happens to be another calamity.
UNICEF, the World Bank, and ODTA, along with their other partners put efforts in reaching vulnerable areas and to benefit people everywhere.
