21. The Committee reiterates its recommendation that the State party allocate adequate resources for children in accordance with the requirements planned in the NPA, the National Strategy of Accelerated Poverty Reduction (or PRSP) 2008-2011, and subsequent national development strategies or plans. The Committee recommends that the State party:
(d) Define strategic budget lines for children in disadvantaged groups or social situations that may require affirmative social measures (such as birth registration, integrated management of childhood infections [IMCI], nutrition interventions, early childhood care and basic education) and ensure that those budgetary lines are protected even in situations of economic crises, natural disasters or other emergencies;
41. The Committee recommends that the State party take all necessary measures to accelerate free of charge birth registration for all children born within the national territory, including children whose father- or both father and mother- are unknown, children born to single mothers, children born out of wedlock and refugee children. It also recommends that the State party carry out information and awareness-raising campaigns for parents and the community at large on the need to register births. The Committee encourages the State party to consider the use of a mobile registration system to reach remote areas and the introduction of a national electronic birth registration system. The Committee urges the State party to allow children without official documentation to access social services, such as health and education, while waiting to be registered.
79. The Committee reiterates its recommendation to the State party to:
(c) Address the concerns of approximately 100,000 – 200,000 Rohingya, including children, not registered as refugees by the State party but who reside in the country for similar reasons as the registered refugees in official camps and to provide them with, at a minimum, legal status, birth registration, security and access to education and health care services;
80. The Committee reiterates its concluding observations after consideration of the initial report of the State party on the implementation of the Optional Protocol on the involvement of children in armed conflict and notes with concern the recruitment of children into the armed forces in the State party. Given the serious constraints of the birth registration system, the Committee is also concerned that in many cases determining the real age of the recruits might be very difficult (CRC/C/OPAC/BGD/CO/1, paras. 15-16).
81. The Committee recommends that the State party continue to develop and strengthen measures to guarantee that:
(a) No child under the minimum age of conscription be enrolled in the army, by establishing and systematically implementing safeguards to verify the age of volunteers, based on objective elements such as birth certificate, school diplomas and, in the absence of documents, medical examination to determine the exact age of the child;
