Equity for Children focuses its work on monitoring and evaluating childhood wellbeing to help ensure accountability of all towards the youngest and most vulnerable members of society.
- The week of June 8 I will be in Colombia to present results from an ongoing evaluation project that Equity for Children undertook with Como Vamos on intra-urban inequities in Colombia. The presentations will be made to government officials and members of the press in Cali and Manizales. Find out more here.
- In New York during May, my colleague Guenay Salazar and I met with and interviewed Jennifer March, Executive Director of the Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York. The group recently launched an evaluation of disparities among children in different neighborhoods of the city, “Keeping Track of New York City’s Children”. Read the report and hear the interview here.
- Last month, Equity for Children attended the “Child sensitive accountability and the post-2015 agenda” United Nations session, held during Intergovernmental Negotiations on the Post-2015 Agenda. Find out more about this important topic here.
I appreciate your continued interest in Equity for Children and look forward to sending you more exciting updates throughout the summer.
