The Child Rights Situation Analysis (CRSA) has informed Save the Children’s strategic decision-making since the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child came into force in 1990. A Country-focused CRSA enables us to understand the extent to which children’s rights are being fulfilled and the obstacles to their realization. SC Thailand launched a Thailand-focused CRSA in 2021 to inform the design of our 2022-24 Country Strategic Plan, serving to shape our program, advocacy and campaigning priorities, and where we will focus our resources and partnerships to improve the lives of children. The CRSA has been informed by the review of 299 documents and websites with focus on quality child rights reports and official statistics. Consultations with children have been carried out and validation workshops conducted with child rights partners, government and Save the Children experts.
