Progress for Children - A Report Card On Child Protection Number 8, September 2009
PDF File Size: 991 KB | Download   
Around the world, far too many children are subject to violence, exploitation and abuse. Some are forced to work under harmful conditions. Others face violence or abuse in their homes, their schools, their communities or in institutional care. In some places children are targets for illegal recruitment by armed groups and armed forces or are forced to flee their homes due to conflict or natural disaster. And millions, especially girls, are subject to sexual violence and abuse as well as harmful traditional practices. This edition of Progress for Children, the eighth in the series that monitors progress towards the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), is a compendium of data that serves as a report card on global and national efforts to protect the rights of children. Data on many child protection issues are more readily available today than ever before. However on some issues – notably sexual exploitation and abuse of children, trafficking and migration data remain difficult to obtain. More must be done to fill these gaps, and with more available data the prospects for concrete results for children will improve. But the data reveal some progress. For example, in some countries where child marriage has been common place, girls are now getting married at a later age. Data also show that female genital mutilation/cutting has declined in recent decades. While progress is being made on these issues, the challenge is to accelerate the pace.Effective child protection systems help ensure that vulnerable children and families have access to school, health care, social welfare, social protection, justice and other essential services. These systems can contribute to breaking the cycle of inter-generational poverty and exploitation, thus contributing to achieving the MDGs. The collective aim must be to create protective
environments in which girls and boys are safe from all forms of violence and exploitation. There must be a concerted effort to protect the rights of children and to expand the opportunities they have to reach their full potential. It is now two decades since the landmark Convention on the Rights of the Child was adopted. As we mark its 20th anniversary this year, this edition of Progress for Children provides key information on child protection. While progress has been made, each child still suffering must inspire us to greater urgency until the Convention’s protections extend to every child, everywhere.
