This report emphasizes the complex nature of child vulnerability, at different stages of childhood, and the multiple risks that children face, from economic, social, cultural, natural and political/conflict-related factors. It argues that a holistic approach to social protection for children is required, combining preventative and responsive social welfare services to protect children from abuse, exploitation and violence, and other social protection instruments, such as cash transfers, and discusses the opportunities for synergies.
