A toolkit for monitoring and evaluating children’s participation

by Child to Child - Wednesday, 21 October 2020, 10:50 PM

It also gives practical tools to gather the information needed to monitor children’s participation. It can be used by organisations working directly with children, by child- and youth-led organisations, and by governments that are committed to fulfilling their obligations to respect children’s right to participate.
