We the Children - Meeting the promises of the World Summit for Children


Published in : 2001

Available in : English

UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan's We the Children is a landmark review of the progress made in meeting the commitments of the 1990 World Summit for Children. An essential reference and guide for anyone interested in development, the report assesses the decade's achievements and its setbacks, highlights best practices and lessons learned, describes the obstacles to progress, and makes recommendations for further action.

The accompanying Statistical Review presents the most recent data on children's rights and well-being, based on an exhaustive 150-country data-collection effort.

This is an adapted and abridged edition of the Secretary-General's report 'We the Children: End-decade review of the follow-up to the World Summit for Children' (A/S-27/3), which was released in May 2001. Some of the data has been updated.
