3. Support to KAS for the expansion of the TransMonEE dataset to include additional child rights indicators, as defined within the national indicators’ framework (education, health, juvenile justice, child protection), SDGs and other child-rights indicators relevant for the Kosovo context.

4. Support the compilation and data collection for the TransMonEE and other child rights related indicators for reporting at regional and global level.

5. Support the development of child-related dashboard on the situation of children’s rights within KAS.
