Unicef joins hands with SC to strengthen child protection

Unicef has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Supreme Court Special Committee on child rights to strengthen the child protection system in Bangladesh and for effective implementation of the Children Act 2013, reports UNB. The initiative reinforces justice for children and establishes a monitoring mechanism of services for children in conflict and in contact with the law by Bangladesh's Supreme Court.
The committee aims to advise, monitor and guide government and non-government stakeholders to realise the rights of children.
The agreement, signed on Tuesday between the Committee and Unicef, includes three key thematic areas: monitoring implementation of the Children Act 2013 - particularly strengthening access to justice for children; developing an information management system and strengthening alternative care facilities, monitoring and follow up.
The initiative is based on the concluding recommendation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) committee.
Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha attended the signing ceremony as the chief guest, said a press release.
