These papers are signed pieces by researchers on current topics in social and economic policy and the realization of children’s rights. They may discuss technical issues in a focused manner, or in a less detailed manner than Working Papers.
In linea con il mandato dell'UNICEF di difendere i diritti dei bambini in ogni paese, la serie Report Card del Centro INNOCENTI si concentra sul benessere dei bambini nei paesi industrializzati. Ogni Report Card include una graduatoria che classifica i paesi dell'OCSE in base ai dati forniti sull'argomento in discussione. Questa serie è stata progettata per attrarre un pubblico più ampio, mantenendo sempre il rigore accademico.

The UNECE Innovation for Sustainable Development Review (I4SDR) provides a solid understanding of the national and regional innovation system through a calibrated assessment and recommendations for policy and structural reform, based on international good practices and a firm understanding of national and regional specificities. The Review is a result of an in-depth dialogue and consultation among the UNECE Secretariat, leading subject matter experts, Government officials, academia, the private sector, and other innovation stakeholders in the country. UNECE also supports subsequent reform efforts through policy dialogue and capacity building tied to the recommendations and priorities of the report. The Review looks at three dimensions – overall economic development and innovation performance, based on input and output metrics, outlining the opportunities and challenges that policies related to enabling and promoting innovation should address; the national innovation system and innovation governance, analysing how and to which extent public policy and existing intervention mechanisms serve to nurture the innovation system, and address these opportunities and challenges; and, selective chapters focusing on the topics of importance to the country, such as science-industry linkages, innovation in specific sectors, innovation-enhancing procurement, start-up support, and diaspora engagement, among others. Based on this analysis, the Review elaborates recommendations and measures to stimulate innovation activity, enhance innovation capacity among stakeholders, and improve the efficiency of the national innovation system – all conducive to sustainable development. The Review uses policy analysis and research, multi–stakeholder meetings at national level for fact–finding, awareness raising and consensus building and a peer review. Following publication, ECE typically supports countries through capacity building and policy dialogue to support return effects. After 3-5 years, at the request of the national authorities, a second review assesses progress and re-evaluates priorities.
