Qatar pledges to promote children’s rights
During the implementation of Qatar National Vision 2030, the State of Qatar reaffirmed its commitment to protecting and promoting children’s rights in line with its obligations under the Convention on the Rights of the Child and its Optional Protocols. The State of Qatar also noted that it has made significant progress in this regard over the past decade by adopting many measures at the legislative and executive levels in many areas and sectors.
This was stated in a statement made by Sheikha Al Maha Mubarak Al-Thani, Third Secretary of the Permanent Mission of the State of Qatar to the United Nations, on behalf of the State of Qatar on the topic of “Promoting and Protecting Children’s Rights” before the Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural) of the United Nations General Assembly. Sheikha Al Maha stated that the State of Qatar places a high priority on the protection and promotion of children’s rights, particularly the right to education, and that the State of Qatar’s national investment in education exceeds 10% of its total expenditures, which is one of the highest rates in the world.
