Revamping Child Protection for the British Caribbean Territories
It’s interesting to take stocks of a new initiative that has been taking roots in the British Caribbean Territories, with the aim of strengthening their protective environments for children, see here.
As many of us are aware, this specific issue is a key element when addressing human development objectives by emphasizing the implementation of pro-active measures, regulations and monitoring methodologies to guarantee the Rights of Children and their survival.

By gearing toward this praxis, the setting of a protective environment for children brings-in several components into the equation, where among them, governments’ commitment and capacity to un-shroud these dynamics go a long way to assure the enforcement of legislation, and the development of partnerships with civil society organizations to help build the capacities of families and communities. It goes without saying that these elements are vital to address or support for example the delivery and provisions of services around the basic tenets of health, education and protection.

Several of the risks and vulnerabilities identified are not unique to the Territories, but nevertheless need addressing, according to Thompson. Among these are the growing level of violence in schools, especially at secondary level. The points are that children lack conflict management skills and recommends that school place emphasis on the development of these skills in students.
