Equity for Children E-Newsletter. N° 59 | June | 2016

Dear friends,

At Equity for Children, we strive to create and participate in forums of exchange, debate and advocacy among researchers, policy makers and practitioners to drive action and impact for child wellbeing.  This month we highlight our activities in two key areas: social protection and urban inequities.

In May, Equity for Children co-organized a workshop in Nigeria to examine trends of child poverty and how social protection has contributed to its decline in Western and Central Africa. Read the communiqué and press release here.

Equity for Children’s Urban Inequities and Children conference last April gathered local authorities, practitioners and academics to discuss concrete solutions addressing childhood inequities in cities.

  • Watch the three-minute conference trailer and full discussions of the first day open forum here.

  • Read more about the key themes discussed here.

Next July 27, I will be participating in a webinar in Spanish to present Tackling Child Poverty in Latin America: Rights and Social Protection in Unequal Societiesa publication I co-edited. To attend click here. The book will soon be available in English and I will be sure to let you know once it is.

Please share this information widely with your networks. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and comments about these events throughout the month.
