Abu Dhabi adopts a new policy for child protection

Abu Dhabi has approved a new child protection policy that aims to assist families in creating a nurturing environment for their children.

It seeks to improve quick response times to instances of abuse or carelessness as well as equality and nondiscrimination.

Additionally, by focusing on the child's best interests, the program will empower parents and other caregivers to provide a secure, safe, and caring environment for their children.

The Abu Dhabi Early kids Authority worked with a number of organizations that are relevant to kids to produce the policy.

During an Abu Dhabi Executive Council meeting, His Highness Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, gave his approval.

Priority should be given to involving kids in programs and activities that help them develop resilience and life skills, according to Sheikh Khaled.

The creation of educational initiatives to inform parents and families about the risks and challenges that children may face on the social, psychological, and physical fronts should also be a priority.

Sheikh Khaled also authorized a plan to establish the Abu Dhabi Real Estate Center during the Abu Dhabi Executive Council meeting. This plan aims to consolidate all real estate services and streamline property-related procedures under one roof.

The new organization will manage government tenders linked to real estate development projects, supervise real estate development projects, track and evaluate project performance, and initiate new projects. It will function under the Department of Municipalities and Transport.

The Child Protection Policy highlights the importance of community, non-profit, private, and governmental involvement in safeguarding children.

In order to address and guarantee the safety and protection of children in the emirate, Abu Dhabi has approved a new child protection policy.

The new policy is an essential component of the Dama Al Aman program run by the Abu Dhabi Early Childhood Authority.

The goal of the policy is to enable children to exercise their right to protection in accordance with the principles of the UAE Child Rights Law, also known as the Wadeema Law. Additionally, it will put in place an evidence-based framework that encourages early problem diagnosis and prompt family and child assistance.
