The Committee on the Rights of the Child now uses an abbreviated reporting process. Once a country has submitted an initial report, subsequent periodic reports are developed using an abbreviated process. The Committee calls for interested parties, including civil society, to make submissions to assist it develop a short, targeted List of Issues (LOI) that includes issues raised in the previously published Concluding Observations. The State Party is required to respond only to the LOI in its follow-up report.
The SANCRC worked with its member organisations to compile and submits the coalition’s submission in November 2020. The SANCRC mobilised and supported its members to develop and submit submissions raising issues specific to organisations, families and children across the coalition’s thematic areas of child rights governance, family support for nurturing care, education and child protection. In addition, a dedicated session was held with children through the Children’s Parliamentary processes to support the development of a separate children’s submission to the UN. The thematic and children’s submissions were consolidated and submitted to the UN on behalf of the whole of the SANCRC.
