United Na­tions Chil­dren's Fund (UNICEF) has launched an in­no­va­tive pro­gramme U-Re­port: PakA­vaz in Pak­istan. The pro­gramme is a mo­bile-based so­cial mon­i­tor­ing tool that has been de­signed to strengthen the process of com­mu­nity de­vel­op­ment by ac­quir­ing di­rect feed­back on so­cial is­sues. The plat­form re­lies on weekly feed­back on a wide range of sub­jects pro­vided by the U-Re­porters, vol­un­teer com­mu­nity mem­bers be­tween the ages of 10-29. Us­ing a SMS-based com­mu­ni­ca­tion plat­form, young peo­ple can ex­press their opin­ion on so­cial and gov­er­nance is­sues to im­prove stan­dards of ser­vice de­liv­ery to com­mu­ni­ties.
