    Abstract An increasing number of e-government services are available to children and families around the world, not least essential digital education, health and social services during the global COVID-19 pandemic. Digital services have a recognised potential to improve service relevance and accessibility for children. However, there is little systematic understanding of what types of services are available or the enabling factors that provide effective child rights support. This report highlights the main findings and recommendations. While e-government practices and systems progress, much still needs to be done to ensure accessibility and integrity as regards children and their data. Improving capacities at all levels of government, safeguarding data, ensuring cross-sector collaboration, and involving children and parents in design are all factors that must be put into practice.
