2021/06 – International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED); research paper; Author(s): Alice Sverdlik & Anna Walnycki

proposes a novel framework to support a transformative recovery in cities of the global South. COVID-19 has created a critical juncture in the development of cities in the global South. Local governments and grassroots organisations have led urban responses that have been pivotal in shaping the pandemic’s outcomes for low-income residents. Yet policymakers have had only a limited focus on the pandemic’s urban dimensions. Synthesising evidence on the pandemic’s impacts in urban areas, this issue paper outlines a set of policy priorities and develops a framework with guiding principles for co-creating inclusive, forward-looking pathways out of the crisis.

Child Poverty and Social Protection in Central and Western Africa

Read more: Child Poverty and Social Protection in Central and Western Africa  (external link)

2021/05 – Comparative Research Programme on Poverty (CROP), International Science Council (ISC); research paper; Author(s): Gustave Nébié, Chinyere Emeka-Anuna, Felix Fofana N'Zu, Enrique Delamonica

This open access book assesses various child poverty trends in the region. Child poverty is distinct, conceptually, and different, quantitatively, from adult poverty. It requires its own independent measurement—otherwise half of the population in developing countries may be unaccounted for when assessing poverty reduction. This book posits that child poverty should be measured based on constitutive rights of poverty, using a multi-dimensional approach. The argument is supported by chapters actually applying and expanding this approach.
