On October 10, 2017, a policy workshop took place in Ezulwini, Swaziland, where SPRI team members – Nesha Ramful, Liên Boon and Victor Cebotari, in partnership with colleagues from the Ministry of Economic Planning & Development, and UNICEF, discussed and validated the final results of the country’s Multidimensional Child Poverty analysis. The audience of the workshop consisted of senior officials from key governmental institutions in Swaziland. Together, SPRI and its partners reflected on the results and discussed implications for policy and practice. The workshop fueled the interest and commitment from all participants to take further actions and reduce the multidimensional child poverty in Swaziland according to the Sustainable Development Goal 1.2.
