COMMITTEE ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD CONSIDERATION OF REPORTS SUBMITTED BY STATES PARTIES UNDER ARTICLE 44 OF THE CONVENTION
PDF File Size: 308 KB | Download   
A decade has passed since Nepal ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child and pledged its commitment to the rights of the child. Nepal submitted its initial report to the Committee on the Rights of the Child in 1995, and the additional report in 1996 in response to questions raised by the Committee. The present second periodic report submitted to the Committee covers the efforts made since 1996 to translate the Convention into reality and the challenges encountered during that process.
Although some progress has been made and changes are taking place as concerns the situation of child rights in Nepal much still remains to be done. During the process of preparing this report, the issue of child rights was discussed from grass-roots to policy-making level. A number of public hearings were held separately with children and adults at regional and district level during the course of drafting the report. In this regard, District Child Welfare Boards (DCWB) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in many districts were invited to collect information and comments on the draft report.
Child rights is everyone’s concern; thus, it is only with the joint efforts of all agencies, organizations and civil society that practical and meaningful changes in the present status of child rights in Nepal can be brought about.
