ChildHope, EveryChild, World Vision and International Children's Trust have written a submission to the Inquiry on DFID's White paper, on behalf of the DFID/CSO Children's Working Group- a coalition of 19 development-focused NGOs, UK-based children's rights organisations and research institutions. We argue that DFID missed an opportunity to put children and young people at the heart of development, not only as beneficiaries but as critical agents for change. In so doing, the Government has failed to adequately meet its obligations under the UNCRC and failed to recognise the importance of children in meeting the wider international development targets set out by the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
