Delegate: Mr. Mizraim Belman Guerrero
21. Mr. Belman Guerrero (Mexico), speaking as a youth delegate, said that his Government’s national system for the protection of children, established through major legislation on the rights of children adopted in 2014, had produced extensive insights into the desires, needs and opportunities available to the more than 40 million children and adolescents in the country, in particular those in vulnerable situations. Mexico was also participating as a pathfinding country in the Global Partnership to End Violence against Children, developing a national roadmap to eradicate violence against children, which involved all levels of Government and recognized the need for children’s participation in the decisions affecting them. Furthermore, the Government was integrating international best practices into education and social welfare services to ensure they were of high quality and had a direct positive impact on children and adolescents. With regard to the draft resolution on the rights of children to be submitted to the Committee, he drew attention to the need to ensure respect for the rights of migrant and indigenous children.
