Shaping a Country's Future With Children and Young People: National Plans of Action for children involving children and young people in their development

Because National Plans of Action (NPA) are being developed to make children’s lives better and make a reality of their rights, it is vital that children and young people themselves are able to contribute towards the design and development of these National Plans of Action. Children are the key stakeholders whose views need to be heard on the best way to achieve these aims. But how should governments go about developing a meaningful ‘partnership’ with children and young people? In order to answer this question Save the Children decided to ask children and young people themselves, in various countries around the world, what they thought governments should do.
This report is a summary of their views and includes their suggestions and ideas about ways in
which governments can involve children and young people as they set about developing their
National Plans of Action.
