We gave two presentations at the conference: 1. “Improving measurement of children’s well-being: Lifecycle needs and context in focus”; and 2. “Child poverty measurement and monitoring in the context of SDGs 1.1 and 1.2”.

The first research paper assesses the adequacy of the most commonly used surveys for measurement of multidimensional child poverty and deprivation in middle-income countries. We specifically analyze the compatibility of indicators available in MICS, DHS, and other household and child and youth surveys in Thailand, Morocco, and Kosovo with these countries’ contexts and life-cycle needs of children depending on their age.

In the second paper, we compare different multidimensional child poverty methodologies in the context of SDG 1.1 and 1.2 measurement. The paper focuses especially on target 1.2 and establishing an official measure of multidimensional child poverty that is child-centered, uses a life-cycle approach, and is contextualized.
