Action Invited on the Declaration from International Summit onChildren, Poverty and Violence
January 31, 2005.
*** On October 22 and 23, 2004, recognized specialists and leading experts
representing 17 different countries from Africa, Asia, North America,
Latin America and Europe met with youths from Canada and Cuba in
Montreal, Quebec, Canada for the International Summit on Children,
Poverty and Violence.
At the Summit, delegates addressed the main issues, barriers and
competing interests that were identified as hampering local, national
and international initiatives to improve the condition of children.
These included the lack of political will and the misdirected
distribution of resources. Delegates prepared a five-year child-rights
based action plan to redress the situation. The resulting Final
Declaration and Recommendations provide helpful guidelines for action
in the years to come and are part of an inclusive and participatory
process aimed at reclaiming civil society and making it work for the
benefit of children.
