Milestone 5: Achieving the SDGs: ending extreme child poverty and halving it by national definitions.

For some countries, the final step may be integrating child poverty into a national action plan (or a poverty reduction plan that fully considers children). This can bring together the situation of child poverty with integrated policy and programmatic solutions. Crucially, the implementation of these plans should be monitored and evaluated.

Milestone 5 includes:

  • Enshrining a national commitment to end extreme child poverty and halve it by national definitions
  • Implementing a comprehensive package of interventions
  • Consistent monitoring and evaluation of progress against the goals, and advocacy to make necessary adjustments
