ABSTRACT

Child Povety, Evidence and Policy is a book about how children’s visibility, voice, and vision in ideas, networks, and political institutions can be mainstreamed in development research and policy. Children account for, on average, 37% of the population in developing countries and 49% in the least-developed countries. Not only are a large proportion of these children poor, but the impacts of poverty suffered during childhood are often enduring and irreversible. We use the lens of 3D well-being to convey a holistic understanding of child poverty and wellbeing, whereby research and policy are approached from multiple angles, with multiple understandings of power and policy change.

Also available in French and Spanish.
