25th anniversary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child
This year, UNICEF celebrates 25 years since the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) came into effect. UNICEF Pacific will convene a series of events in our country and field offices to highlight progress on major issues confronting the most vulnerable children. Although much progress has been made (the number of out-of-school children has dropped and there has been a huge decrease in under-five deaths), not all children have benefitted. Existing challenges and disparities deprive many children of their rights and the benefits of development. Joint investment and use of innovative approaches and new products can bring about positive change at a faster pace and for the most vulnerable. UNICEF is using the 25th Anniversary year to bring together and work with partners to rethink how we can do even better on delivering results for children. Activities will take place throughout 2014, concluding with events in November 2014 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the CRC.
