The Scottish Government has published a progress report on its response to the 2008 concluding observations from the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.

As well as setting out progress to date, the report also describes the range of additional activity that Scottish Ministers are committed to delivering over the life of this parliament in order to progress the rights agenda.

Among the key noted developments are the shift towards prevention and early intervention and support in the early years. It is noted that implementation of the getting it right for every child approach will be improved by legislation in 2013. Legislative proposals on children's rights will also be brought forward in 2013.

The report also sets out progress in each of the 21 areas of priority action identified in the 2008 report 'Do the Right Thing'.
