The Resident Coordinator of UN in Bhutan, Gerald Daly met with the Special Representative of the Secretary-General on Violence against Children (VAC), Marta Santos Pais on May 8 at the UN House. During their bilateral meeting, they discussed on issues related to violence against children and the way forward for Host Governments and the UN to address these issues.

 

Marta Santos Pais is currently in Bhutan to attend the 8th Cross-Regional High-Level Round Table on the Prevention and Elimination of Violence against Children. This will build on the recommendations from previous meetings, particularly those on advancing progress towards reaching the VAC-related targets of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

 

The upcoming sessions of the High-Level Political Forum1 (HLPF) will provide a strategic milestone to accelerate further progress towards a world free from VAC.
