An estimated 36 million of a total population of 41 million children under the age of 18 in Ethiopia are multi-dimensionally poor, meaning they are deprived of basic goods and services in at least three dimensions. In the week of May 29 – June 2, 2017 our team conducted a UNICEF-supported workshop in Addis Ababa to build the capacities of the staff of the Central Statistical Agency of Ethiopia (CSA) and other government officials to conduct child poverty analysis.
According to World Bank data, Burundi is one of the poorest countries in the world. When using the international threshold of 1.25$ per day, 74% of the children are living in monetary poor households. The main objective of this project consisted of conducting a child poverty analysis contextualized to the Burundi norms and standards in order to provide policy recommendations and to come up with baseline for the Sustainable Development Goals 1.1.2.
