In this wide ranging interview, Nobel Laureate Professor James Heckman explains why early childhood development must feature prominently on the global development agenda, now. In doing so Professor Heckman calls for a radical change in how governments and policy makers view human development.

Supporting his message from the frontline is UNICEF's Representative in Bangladesh, Carel de Rooy, on the value of early investments in a child's life cycle.
