Abstract: Currently, many European Union programmes and budget lines indirectly benefit children through social investment in health, education and community development programmes. The challenge for government administrations is how to mainstream and integrate children’s rights and needs throughout all relevant development programmes. The challenge is to maximise the effectiveness of programmes aimed at development to relate to children’s rights and to promote and protect the rights of the child. The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), 1989 sets a series of standards for children. These should be used by bilateral and multilateral agencies in their development assistance programmes. The Convention on the Rights of the Child should be used to define criteria for ‘child proofing’ development policy.
