HRH Princess Lalla Meryem Chairs National Meeting On Consolidation Of Child Rights Protection Mechanisms
HRH Princess Lalla Meryem, President of the National Observatory for the Rights of the Child, chaired, on Sunday in Rabat, the National Meeting for the Consolidation of the Mechanisms for the Protection of the Rights of the Child, organised on the occasion of the 25th of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Held under the high patronage of HM King Mohammed VI, the forum focused on the setting up of an action plan to define the impact of the ratification of the third optional protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on national child right monitoring and complaint mechanisms.
Special attention was given in this regard to the roles of national mechanisms and institutions supporting children notably the ministries and agencies dealing with children’s rights, the National Observatory for the Rights of the Child and the National Council for Human Rights.
The Forum was also meant to reach cooperation protocols with a view to strengthening legal protection for the rights of the child by reinforcing mechanisms for alert, complaint and intervention mechanisms to protect the child against all forms of violence and abandonment as well as physical and emotional abuse.
