Level 2 Emergencies

This is the UNICEF Procedure for Level 2 (L2) emergencies, defined as a situation where the magnitude of the emergency is such that a Country Office needs additional and prioritized support from other parts of the organization (Headquarters, Regional and Country Offices) to respond, and where the Regional Office (RO) must provide dedicated leadership and support. It is designed for the UNICEF Country Programme's response (sectors and cross-cutting areas) to be timely, appropriately assessed, and designed and executed according to the Core Commitments for Children in Humanitarian Action (CCCs).
