Around the world, the impact of extreme poverty on children’s development is devastating. This is most apparent when considering the relationship between child nutrition and economic wellbeing and vice versa. It could be further compounded according to predictions that, over the next decade, climate and disaster risk impacts will push an estimated 325 million poor people further into extreme poverty in some of the poorest and most fragile contexts.
Marginalized communities face many challenges in their quest to provide a better future for their children. In particular, economic pressure causes desperate people to resort to solutions that are not in the best interests of their children.
