The implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child continues to face numerous challenges, even in wealthy countries like Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Poverty, bullying, stress and air pollution are just a few of the issues that affect children’s mental and physical health and developmental opportunities, and thus have a strong impact on child wellbeing. In order to identify and address these challenges, UNICEF Switzerland and Liechtenstein conducts continuous monitoring on selected issues relevant to children’s rights.
