Why do a CRWIA?

Why do a CRWIA?

Article 4 of the UNCRC requires governments

'to undertake all appropriate legislative, administrative and other measures for the implementation of the rights recognised in the UNCRC'.

CRWIAs are one of the general measures of implementation under the Convention. The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child recommends that all levels of government - national, regional and local – should complete a CR[W]IA as part of their policy development.
