On the occasion of the 17th Anniversary of the Adoption of the Convention of the Rights of the Child
Abstract:
OHCHR and UNICEF in Nepal appeal for the Government and CPN-Maoist to place the rights and wellbeing of children among their key priorities in the implementation of the peace process. On the eve of an historic peace agreement, there is an opportunity to restore the rights of children who have suffered greatly during the long conflict, and to ensure that future generations of Nepali children can grow and thrive in lasting peace. OHCHR and UNICEF are working with the Government, the CPN-Maoist, child protection and youth organisations to ensure that the special needs of children are addressed in Nepal. OHCHR and UNICEF in Nepal remain greatly concerned that even now children under 18 are still being recruited, voluntarily or forcibly, by the CPN-Maoist, in violation of international standards and their own commitments. #RIGHTS #CHILDRIGHTS #PROTECTIONOFCHILD
