National Status Report on Child Rights - 2004

A Summary Report on the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN CRC) in Nepal, prepared by Gauri Pradhan, President of Child Workers in Nepal Concerned Centre (CWIN-Nepal ) and submitted to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child. According to the UN CRC, the issue of child rights is a responsibility of state. The state which gives priority to the questions regarding the betterment of children is the state that also makes a contribution to its development and social transformation. However, within the context of Nepal, there has been minimum implementation and transformation, although the plans of action covering the period 2002-2007 formulates various provisions for the protection and promotion of child rights. National plans of action have been formulated for matters such as child labour, trafficking in women and commercial sexual exploitation, human rights and bonded labour, but the government has been ineffective in managing, appropriating, and preserving the human power and resources necessary for the implementation of such work plans.
