Children are some of the most vulnerable groups in poorer societies.
Vulnerable and poor households often respond to shocks in ways that negatively impact child wellbeing, including child labour. Poor quality of education impacts children's future prospects, while food insecurity can have both serious short and long term consequences for children. CID researchers provide evidence based policy initiatives that aim to improve child wellbeing.
