UNICEF and the Government have decided to include early childhood as a cross-cutting issue of the programme of cooperation. The country programme seeks to facilitate an increasing recognition of children’s rights. Efforts are being directed at setting up the necessary mechanisms and strengthening the government’s capacity to ensure full implementation of Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Furthermore, activities undertaken through the country programme aim to contribute to poverty alleviation and support other Millenium Development Goals priorities.
