Inter-agency Statement calling for a focus on strengthening family care and appropriate alternative care in the 2014 United Nations General Assembly Resolution on the Rights of the Child

A coaltion of over 40 international, regional and national NGOs and networks have issued a joint call to member States of the United Nations General Assembly (UN GA) to focus the 2014 Resolution on the Rights of the Child on strengthening family care and providing appropriate alternative care for children. The joint statement underlines that a thematic focus on children's care should also be linked with the current debate on the successor of the MDGs and how to include child protection and care in the post-2015 framework.
