Multidimensional Child Poverty in Mozambique
End poverty in all its forms everywhere
Last year, 2019, marked the thirtieth anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) by which countries recognize children as individuals entitled to non-negotiable rights. It is also 25 years since the Government of Mozambique demonstrated its own commitment to fulfil the rights of the country’s over 14 million children − 57 per cent of Mozambique’s population.
Multidimensional child poverty analysis – presented in this report − provides an opportunity and the means to take stock of the nation’s progress in fulfilling commitment to the CRC and meeting the challenges of achieving the sustainable development goals for children. This analysis will help to identify areas for the Government’s immediate and decisive action.
