Childhood and adolescence

Children and adolescents in Colombia are classified as those individuals between conception and 17 years of age. In accordance with Colombian legislation, they are recognized as having rights which are legally guaranteed under nine principles: best interests, the right to be prioritized, co-responsibility, enforceability, equity, social inclusion, solidarity, complementarity and subsidiarity. As such, children and adolescents in Colombia are recognized as autonomous beings and active subjects, with the right to integral physical, mental and social development, and while the family is recognized as a primary environment for children’s wellbeing, the State and wider society are also co-responsible for their overall protection.

Our contribution

Econometría has contributed to the development of understanding around the situation of children, at the different stages of their lives, through analysis, studies and evaluations of policy, programmes and public interventions aimed at boys and girls. It has likewise participated in raising awareness of the role of this age group in sectoral policies. Furthermore, we have worked with NGOs and Multilateral Organisms, such as Unicef and Save the Children, to analyze steps taken to protect the child population and to assess the level of its inclusion in public actions in relation to local development, participation and protection.
