The CPC Network, Child Protection in Crisis

This document analyses the review of 43 impact studies sought to methodically capture the known impacts of economic strengthening programs (microcredit, skills training, agricultural interventions, etc.) on the well-being of children (0-18 years) in crisis contexts in low-income countries. The review looked at effects on children both from interventions engaging caregivers as beneficiaries, and those targeting children themselves. The goals were to understand the types of approaches taken to economic strengthening that focus on improving children’s welfare, catalog the interventions that have been rigorously evaluated for their impacts on children, and synthesize the evidence to identify the gaps in knowledge. This document is produced by the CPC Livelihoods and Economic Strengthening Task Force.
