Innovations in Investing in Young Children Globally—A Workshop
Date: October 20, 2016 - October 21, 2016 (4:30 PM GMT+1)
The Forum has explored innovations in investments from both the private and public sectors as well as highlighted several innovative programs that address children’s health, education, nutrition, and social protection needs. While innovation has been a thematic area of broad interest for the Forum overall, specific approaches for catalyzing innovation in research, policy, and practice has not been a central focus of any particular workshop to date. Therefore, the workshop in Abidjan will allow for further exploration of current innovations related to investing in young children globally, yet with a regional focus on West Africa. A focus on innovation will be central to the format and content of the workshop as both a platform for highlighting and synthesizing existing science, policy, and best practices in an engaging way, and as a conduit to infuse new energy and direction into the future of investments in young children globally.
