Description

This policy begins with a definition of what a child is in the Solomons. It then briefly describes the history behind the development of this policy.

From this, it moves on and lays out a vision and mission for this policy. From that, it presents the goals (the key strategic areas) and objectives for the policy.

Following this are two sections that describe how the policy will be implemented. The first section presents the organisational framework for implementing the policy, and a brief listing of the key partners in child development.

The paper finishes with acknowledgements and a bibliography. The first Annex to the paper provides a situation analysis that describes many of the situations in the Solomons that relate to children. The second Annex presents the first National Action Plan for Children; this plan will change annually as stakeholder plans are updated.
