Milestone 4: Reducing child poverty through policy and programme change

Child poverty analysis can directly influence policies and programmes. For example, social protection programmes can be targeted for the poorest children; budgetary process can respond to child poverty levels; and child poverty can be explicitly included in legislation or national plans. The guide will highlight approaches that have led to policies and programmes to reduce child poverty.

Milestone 4 includes:  

  • An overview of the package of policies and programmes that can reduce child poverty
  • What to focus on: picking the right policies and programmes to advocate for
  • Making policy change happen: key policy questions and analytical approaches to answering them
