The Ministry of Women and Child Development, Government of India has recently drafted the National Plan of Action for Children 2016, which provides a roadmap that links our Policy objectives to actionable strategies. This Policy is meant to guide and inform all laws, policies, plans and programs affecting children. As children’s needs are multi-sectoral and interconnected; they require collective action. The Policy aims for purposeful convergence and strong coordination across different sectors (especially child related) and levels of governance; active engagement and partnerships with all stakeholders and the setting up of a comprehensive and reliable knowledge base and sensitisation and capacity development of all those who work for and with children. A long term, sustainable, multi-sectoral, integrated and inclusive approach is in place for the overall and harmonious development and protection of children.
