  • Who? (Organigram)
  • When? (Timeframe)
why background
Why? (Background)
  • Persistence of poverty == weak progress toward the MDGs
  • Progress towards MDGs BUT millions of children and women left-behind
  • 50% of children in the developing world severely deprived of one or more of the following seven dimensions of poverty: nutrition, health, education, water, sanitation, information, and housing.

- Need for a Global Study on child poverty and disparities

-> contribute to a comprehensive strategy for making countries’ development, social protection and sector strategies more responsive to child poverty

2 what for purpose
2. What for? (Purpose)
  • Strengthen the profile of children at the national policy debates;
  • Influence the economic and social policies that affect resource allocations;
  • Make children a priority in national programs.


    • Leveraging evidence, analysis, policy and partnership to deliver results for ALL children.
    • Making policymakers and the public better able to identify and address gaps in current responses.
    • Identifying how public policies could be more effective responses for realising children’s rights and ending child poverty.
analytical lens of the study
Analytical “lens” of the study:

Increasingly specific

Gaps and opportunities in national PR strategies (overall analysis)

Poverty and disadvantages of families with children (analysis of poverty at family level)

How public policies could more effectively reduce child deprivations (analysis of solutions at both levels)

3 in what sense conceptual framework 2
3. In what sense? (Conceptual Framework)(2)

Analyse the links between economic and social policy and children’s outcomes:

1. how poverty impacts children (what factors explain progress and disparities in child outcomes)

2. how public policies, private and civil society efforts affect these outcomes (Who benefits, who is left out, how?)

3 in what sense conceptual framework 3
3. In what sense? (Conceptual Framework) (3)

Comprehensive child poverty concept considers:

  • Income and non-income factors that determine the fulfillment of child rights
  • Impact of resource scarcity and deprivations on children
  • Childhood separate from adulthood (life cycle approach)
  • Children deprived of a safe and caring environment are also most likely to experience other deprivations
in what sense conceptual framework 4
In what sense? (Conceptual Framework)(4)

Examine 5 areas of public policy:

  • Child Protection
