International Framework

BCN works to develop, disseminate and promote key policies, guidelines and standards in the area of children's care. This primarily includes the Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children and related standards, as well as international resources such as the Manual for the Measurement of Indicators for Children in Formal Care and Moving Forward: Implementing the 'Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children'.  BCN is currently co-chairing with Save the Children an interagency initiative to develop a tool to support national actors in tracking the implementation of the Guidelines in their countries. BCN also regularly produces Country Care Reviews to highlight care-relevant sections from the Concluding Observations of the Committee on the Rights of the Child and the Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, in countries around the world.
