Inequality and Child Poverty
Child poverty is now a high priority in the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Poverty reduction will have to be monitored using international and national monetary poverty measures and also in ‘multi-dimensional’ terms. With this lecture, Martin Evans from UNICEF outlines the current state of play in global child poverty profiles and considers options for improving child poverty measurement. Empirical evidence is shown on both international and national profiles of child poverty and its discussion considers issues that are common to both poverty and inequality measurement for future SDG monitoring.
