Together with seven other partnerships from different sectors, SWA will organize a high-level event at the 2017 United Nations General Assembly. The session will discuss how investing early, even before birth, in young children’s development – through nutrition, health, education, sanitation, security, responsive caregiving and early learning – is one of the smartest interventions governments can make to address inequality, break the cycle of poverty, and improve outcomes later in life.
The event will mark the start of broad consultations to develop a nurturing care framework for early childhood development – including actions and results that countries can use to guide their investments in early childhood development. In addition, the event will also serve as the official launch of UNICEF’s new report Early Moments Matter for Every Child, which details a six-point action agenda for governments and businesses.
