Economic Strengthening for Vulnerable Children

Principles of Program Design and Technical Recommendations for Effective Field Interventions

The multi-faceted nature of child vulnerability – whether due to epidemics such as HIV/AIDS, conflict, natural disasters, extreme poverty, or a host of other contextual factors – is reflected in the wide spectrum of professional disciplines that have mobilized to address it. Among these, economic strengthening is gaining in importance and prominence as few experts in this area doubt that poverty is a major contributor to the challenges they face.

For this realization to be translated into improved programming and child outcomes, specialists from an array of disciplines including child protection, economic strengthening and health among others must be able to effectively work across their principle areas of practice in multi-sectoral teams. At present, there are few resources to guide this process in the area of economic strengthening.
