Putting Children First: A Policy Agenda to End Child Poverty
This briefing paper draws on evidence and the experience of over 20 organisations working together in the Global Coalition to End Child Poverty.
It outlines key building blocks for how countries can address child poverty and offers evidence and experience to support national discussion on the best policy options for children.
- Build national support by ensuring that reducing child poverty is an explicit national priority.
- Expand child-sensitivity in social protection systems and programmes.
- Improve access to quality public services, especially for the poorest children.
- Promote a decent work and inclusive growth agenda to reach families and children in poverty.
The building blocks are discussed as an entry point to identify the types of policies that can help overcome child poverty and its impacts.
