child well-being and more…

July 26, 2011

The start of the summer holidays, or rather the end of a productive first half of 2011, has been accompanied with the publication and dissemination of outputs on child well-being, child and HIV-sensitive social protection and more. Although the summer should (at least in part) be devoted to fun and relaxing activities, for those who cannot resist the temptations of looking into some interesting and new resources:

– OECD has just launched a new wikiprogress site focusing on child well-being.  It holds intersting information on child well-being itself and also keeps track of major research and policy developments and has an indicative list of resources. As it happens, this blog is part of this resource list around issues of multidimensional child well-being and child poverty.

– UNICEF published a report documenting the translation of knowledge into policy ‘Knowledge for Action: Emerging experiences in child-focused Social and Economic Policy’. Although not very in-depth, it provides interesting examples of UNICEF programming and how such programmes sought in using knowledge, research and evidence in more practical ways in terms of policy influence and capacity building.

– UNICEF ESARO published the final report for the study that IDS and the Centre for Social Protection undertook to assess lessons learned with respect to child and HIV sensitive social protection for children affected by HIV. The study is based on country case studies in five different countries in the region (Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Swaziland and Tanzania) and draws key opportunities, challenges and lessons learned from a wide range of child and social protection programs that were supported within UNICEF’s Children and AIDS Regional Initiative.

Final report ‘Lessons from the Children and AIDS Regional Initiative (CARI): Child- and HIVsensitive social protection in Eastern and Southern Africa’ – CARI CSSP
