The global economic crisis. Balancing the books on the backs of the world’s most vulnerable children?

The G20 urgently needs to agree steps to achieve a broad-based recovery from the global economic crisis. Save the Children is calling on G20 countries to acknowledge their collective responsibility by disbursing the funds they have committed, demonstrating strong support for social protection programmes, and working in partnership with developing countries. The governments of low-income countries also have a pivotal role to play, by ensuring that spending is progressive and that cuts do not have a detrimental impact on the poorest and most vulnerable children.
