The 2nd EAC Child Rights Conference


The 2nd EAC Child Rights Conference themed Coordinated and Sustained Investment in Children is taking place on 25th to 26th August 2016 at the Desmond Tutu Conférence Centre in Westland in Nairobi, Kenya.

The 2nd EAC Child Rights Conference will launch the adopted EAC Child Policy and discuss the strategies for national implementation; take stock of the progress made towards the realisation of Child Rights based on the 1st EAC Conference and the Bujumbura Declaration commitments; and share experiences on the progress made in the realisation of Child Rights in the EAC and how to address the challenges encountered during implementation.

The Conference will also identify key and common barriers that negatively impact on the realisation of Child Rights in the EAC; and provide a platform for facilitating children participation in the definition of processes for integration of the EAC Child Policy at national level.
