The conference offers a platform for bridging divides across sectors, disciplines and policy, practice and research:

  • to identify, debate and advocate proven solutions to end child poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa;
  • to share and discuss new research on who and where poor children are, why they are poor and whattailored approaches to address their situation may look like;
  • to discuss particular policy and programming challenges and how they can be addressed;
  • to build links and networks between researchers, policy makers and practitioners;
  • to stimulate learning on particular skills that may help to move research to action.
