Barrie, Francois
Dominica is the largest and least densely populated of the islands of the Organization of Easter Caribbean States. This paper provides a socioeconomic overview of Dominica and highlights the nation's efforts to comply with the provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). The paper provides data on population, sex ratio, migration patterns, population density, ethnic groups, agriculture, informal employment, and poverty. The paper goes on to highlight activities being undertaken to support the CRC, which Dominica ratified in March, 1991, including the World Bank-sponsored Basic Education Reform Project. This project will construct new secondary schools and rehabilitate many primary schools. The paper also notes that the new Dominica Education Act being considered by parliament addresses the rights of children. (MDM)
