1.  Report Card 12
The 2008 financial crisis triggered the first contraction of the world economy in the post-war era. Global output shrank between 2008 and 2009 in what became known as the Great Recession. The nature, duration and severity of the economic downturn varied across countries and regions. Emerging evidence indicates that children are likely to have suffered disproportionately because of falling household incomes (e.g. due to job losses; benefit cuts) and reduced access to quality services. Although the long-term impact of the economic crisis on children's life chances cannot yet be assessed, Report Card 12 explores the various ways in which children have been affected by the economic crisis and government responses to it in the OECD and European Union countries.
The report will be launched on 28 October 2014.

2.  State of the World’s Children 2015
     Reimagine Our World: Thinking differently for every child [working title]

The upcoming report is inspired by the remarkable work of innovators around the world who are pushing boundaries and crafting solutions for local problems that reflect urgent global needs. The interactive online report features essays by young inventors, technologists, business people, health professionals, artists and others, along with interactive and multimedia elements. The digital platform also links users to an innovation community and a constellation of open-source ideas, and invites everyone to be a part of the conversation and share their own creative ideas – or nominate someone they know – on an interactive map.
The report will be launched on 20 November 2014.
