Listen to this webinar 'The Child Poverty Challenge: In Search of Solutions' which took place on Monday 12th December 2016, 14.00 – 16.15 UK time.
Children are the most vulnerable people in the world – but rarely has the impact of poverty on children been addressed as an urgent issue in its own right. A new book provides essential reading for all those working on social protection and poverty reduction programmes in developing countries, including researchers, policy makers, and those working for development agencies.
This webinar was an opportunity to hear from several of the book’s authors who provided a snapshot on their chapters. There was alsoa chance to ask presenters questions.
