During the strategic period from 2020 to 2023, Watchlist will build upon its unique position as a network of nongovernmental organizations working on the UN’s children and armed conflict (CAC) agenda, as well as the credibility it has achieved over the years, in order to continue to advance the rights of children embroiled in war. Specifically, Watchlist will seek to:
- Preserve the integrity of the UN’s CAC mandate;
- Advance the implementation of the CAC agenda; and
- Protect children’s rights in new and emerging contexts.
