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 is an opportunity to hear from several of the book’s authors who will provide a snapshot into their chapters. There will also be a chance to ask presenters questions.
