Two factors shaped UNICEF’s work in the East Asia and the Pacific region in 2013 – the economic growth experienced over recent years, which has meant that most countries in the region are now middle-income countries, and the prevalence of natural disasters in a region that is the most disaster prone in the world.Regional economic growth rates were, on average, above 6 per cent in 2013 according to ESCAP.Sustained growth meant governments had far greater financial capacity, but many were still struggling to create governance mechanisms and infrastructure capable of protecting and promoting the rights of vulnerable children, and disparities and inequities remained high and, in some cases, increased.Regional growth levels, while enviable by global standards, represented a decrease in average growth for many EAP countries, and this led to fiscal tightening. At the same time, traditional international donors reacted to higher overall national incomes by withdrawing or reducing their assistance.UNICEF’s attention in 2013 was largely focused on leveraging countries' national wealth to encourage investment in social sectors that benefit children, and on promoting national policies and programmes that reduce the disadvantage of vulnerable children. Overall, in East Asia and the Pacific, there has been considerable progress towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), with most countries in the region on track to achieve at least some targets by 2015, but progress has been uneven. The region is an early achiever of MDG 1 (poverty reduction) and 7 (with respect to access to safe water), and it has achieved gender parity in primary education and is on track to reach the primary school enrolment and completion targets. Slower progress has been made in reducing malnutrition and under-five deaths, and significant effort is still needed to improve basic standards of sanitation, maternal health and women ’ s participation in leadership.
