For every child, every right. The Convention on the Rights of the Child at a crossroads

UN Children's Fund UNICEF, (2019)


Thirty years ago, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Rights of the Child at a moment of rapid global change marked by the end of apartheid, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the birth of the World Wide Web. These developments and more brought momentous and lasting evolution, as well as a sense of renewal and hope for future generations. In a reflection of that hopeful spirit, the Convention has since become the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history.

A Second Revolution: Thirty years of child rights, and the unfinished agenda. Summary

Terre des hommes, Save the Children, Plan International, SOS Children's Villages International, World Vision, ChildFund Alliance, (2019)


The report showed commitments made three decades ago to protect the rights of children remain unfulfilled for millions. Violence still affects countless children. Discrimination based on age, gender, disability, sexual orientation and religion harms children worldwide. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is the most widely ratified international human rights treaty in history. It has prompted substantial investment in children’s health, education and safety and the adoption of laws and policies that recognise the rights of children, particularly in areas where they are vulnerable, including labour exploitation, corporal punishment, alternative care and forced and early marriage.

A Second Revolution: Thirty years of child rights, and the unfinished agenda

Terre des hommes, Save the Children, Plan International, SOS Children's Villages International, World Vision, ChildFund Alliance, (2019)


The report showed commitments made three decades ago to protect the rights of children remain unfulfilled for millions. Violence still affects countless children. Discrimination based on age, gender, disability, sexual orientation and religion harms children worldwide. Key factors include a lack of investment in critically important services. Most countries fall well short of spending the 5-6% of GDP needed to ensure universal coverage of essential health care. And foreign aid, which many lower income countries rely on, is falling short in areas such as health, education, protection and child care. Another factor, the report said, is the lack of quality data. Governments tend to rely on data that reflects national averages, making it difficult to identify the needs of specific children and to monitor progress. Comprehensive data collection and disaggregation of data by gender, age, disability and locality, are increasingly important as rights violations disproportionately affect disadvantaged children.

Una segunda revolución: 30 años de derechos de los niños y las niñas y la agenda pendiente

Terre des hommes, Save the Children, Plan International, SOS Children's Villages International, World Vision, ChildFund Alliance, (2019)


La Convención sobre los Derechos del Niño de las Naciones Unidas es el tratado más ampliamente ratificado de la historia. Los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible (ODS) han sido acordados por todos los gobiernos. La Convención y los ODS van de la mano. No podremos alcanzar los ODS sin hacer realidad los derechos de todos los niños y niñas y viceversa. El presente informe apela a los Estados para que cumplan sus compromisos con un vigor, una urgencia y una imaginación renovados para que todos los niños y niñas puedan crecer sanos, con acceso a la educación, protegidos de la violencia y con la libertad de elegir cómo quieren vivir sus vidas. Pero esta tarea no la pueden lograr solo los Estados. Nosotros, como las seis principales ONG internacionales dedicadas a la infancia en todo el mundo, creemos que nuestra aportación es importante.

Una segunda revolución: 30 años de derechos de los niños y las niñas y la agenda pendiente. Resumen Ejecutivo

Terre des hommes, Save the Children, Plan International, SOS Children's Villages International, World Vision, ChildFund Alliance, (2019)


La Convención sobre los Derechos del Niño de las Naciones Unidas, adoptada hace 30 años, ha contribuido a una transformación de proporciones históricas. En casi todos los indicadores, la calidad de vida de los niños y las niñas es por lo general mucho mejor hoy que hace 30 años. Hoy reciben vacunas, se alimentan de manera sana, viven en condiciones seguras y van a la escuela centenares de millones de niños y niñas más que entonces. Las leyes y las políticas reconocen los derechos de la infancia de un modo sin precedentes. Pero no es momento de celebraciones. En los barrios marginados, las zonas de conflicto, los centros de inmigrantes y las aldeas remotas hay millones de niños y niñas cuyas vidas no han mejorado. Tienen hambre, están enfermos y no tienen acceso a la educación. Muchos sufren violencia, abusos, explotación o descuido. A menudo esto se debe a la discriminación de la que son objeto por su raza, casta o religión, identidad de género (especialmente hacia las niñas), orientación sexual o por tener alguna discapacidad. Son los niños y las niñas que se han dejado atrás. Su situación supone un incumplimiento grave de las promesas que se hicieron a los niños y las niñas en 1989.

Digital Accessibility Toolkit

Christoffel Blinden Mission (CBM), (2018)


CBM’s approach is based on the principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and on CBM’s responsibility to promote accessibility and the principles of universal design in all spheres of its work, including CBM’s digital content and communications. With this toolkit, we want to provide a guide and practice resource to people working with and for CBM so that together we produce accessible digital content and communications, and place accessibility at the centre of our Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) procurement processes. The toolkit contains a selection of tools for producing accessible content in electronic documents, videos, figures and tools to ensure web accessibility. It also provides tools and information for accessible ICT procurement including tips and resources on how to communicate CBM’s accessibility requirements for products and services being purchased; and how to evaluate what providers promise and deliver.
