To promote awareness of the UNCRC and to monitor its implementation in the country, the Philippine NGO Coalition on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (NGO Coalition CRC) undertook activities in 2012 to test the systems and tools for CRC monitoring, build on the capacity of its members to raise their level of understanding of all human rights mechanisms, and mobilize members to include children/young persons in the CRC monitoring. The NGO Coalition CRC actively participated in human rights advocacy in the ASEAN region, asserted its position on key issues affecting children in different situations, disseminating the CRC Concluding Observations, and reviewed the functionalities of the Local Council on the Protection of Children (LCPC).
