UNCRC General Comment No.19: Launch Results
Over the last three years, the Child Rights Connect Working Group on Investment in Children has supported the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child to develop General Comment No. 19 on Public Budgeting for the Realisation of Children’s Rights (art.4).
After its adoption, the Working Group has also supported the roll out of General Comment No. 19. In collaboration with the UN Committee, the Permanent Mission of Uruguay and the Delegation of the European Union, the Working Group organized a global launch of General Comment No. 19 on 22 September in Geneva.
This global launch was followed by 28 regional and national launches organized by different members of the Working Group. The launch events were organized in different ways, including through workshops and meetings with policy- makers, civil society, children and the media. They also engaged the public through social media and public events.
