UNICEF has produced an interactive mapping of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) which highlights the connections and synergies between the two frameworks.

The document allows the reader to jump between each Global Goal and each related Convention article and vice versa.

The mapping takes a detailed, yet deliberately broad, interpretation of the Global Goals and the Convention, highlighting for users the connections between the two frameworks, so as to reinforce their potential for advocacy and implementation. It will therefore be a useful tool for all to advocate for both CRC and SDG implementation over the coming years.

UNICEF also highlighted the importance of this tool for UNICEF and others' efforts to outline the importance of the SDGs for children and work towards universal and child rights-focused SDG implementation around the world.
