Knowledge for Action: Emerging experiences in child-focused Social and Economic Policy, Volume 2

In order to improve knowledge sharing around child-focused social and economic policy, UNICEF is investing in docu­menting and sharing country experiences in this area. This compendium features 18 recent innovations and lessons learned that illustrate the range of UNICEF's work on child-focused social and economic policy. These cases highlight UNICEF’s and its partners’ experience in making policy work a core strategy for reaching the most deprived.
The cases highlighted in this publication are highly diverse examples - from design and impact analysis of a cash transfer programme in Senegal to development of an equity-focused child-centred methodology for situation analysis in Iraq; making visible the impact of the economic crisis on children in Mexico; ex-ante analysis of the impact of a proposed tax change in Serbia; shaping a child sensitive National Social Protection Strategy in Cambodia; and to scaling up of the social protection system in Mozambique, among others.
