Written by FDM

A  platform for the monitoring of child rights indicators has just seen the daylight. It was developed by The Global Child Rights Dialogue and supported by the National Observatory for the Rights of the Child (ONDE ) chaired by HRH Princess Lalla Meryem.

It will better assess the situation of children in Morocco. The Child Rights Indicators Monitoring Platform was launched following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Lamia Bazir, Executive Director of the National Observatory for the Rights of the Child (ONDE), Justice Renate Winter, head of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and Dr. Ziba Vaghri, director of GlobalChild at the dedicated seminar.

It’s a device developed by The Global Child Rights Dialogue and based on the principles of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). More importantly, a pilot project launched in Rabat, with the support of the German Cooperation (GIZ) and the Head of Government Department, which will, in practice, “centralize all national data on children, ensure watch continues to trace trends and emergencies and guide decision-making, while evaluating policies and programs targeting children in Morocco”, as  Lamia Bazir rightly explained.

During this meeting, several ministers were present as the Minister of the Family, solidarity, equality and social development, Bassima Hakkaoui and the Minister of Health, Anas Doukkali since the device affects all sectors playing an undeniable role in the protection of the rights of the child. To be continued.
