Improving Children's Lives, Transforming the Future - 25 years of child rights in South Asia

As the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) marks its 25 anniversary in 2014, this publication looks at how the CRC has changed the lives of children over the last 25 years in the eight countries of South Asia, all of which have ratified the CRC.

Divided according to the life cycle of a child, from conception to marriage, this publication highlights areas where significant problems remain: gender, child protection, health, nutrition, education, and sanitation. Each gap is explored and accompanied by innovations, i.e. ways in which governments, civil societies, or NGOs have developed to address these gaps. “Ideas for moving ahead”, or ways to overcome gaps and blockages to fulfilling the CRC, are also provided for each gap.
