Child Impact

Economic trends and policies affect all children, particularly the most impoverished and marginalized. Robust evidence is critical to promoting child rights and ensuring equitable policies are in place to protect them against unexpected shocks, and to improve their daily lives. This website links to initiatives underway across UNICEF and provides analytical tools on economic trends and policies, their impacts on children, and is a means to formulate timely and effective responses to crises, economic shocks and policy reform.
