Abstract: Although a wide body of research has been documenting the positive effects of social protection not only on the reduction and prevention of monetary poverty but also on the improvement of other human development indicators, child poverty remains a critical issue in South Asia. A recent study by the IPC-IG and the UNICEF Regional Office for South Asia has analysed 51 programmes in the eight countries of the region, including the child-sensitivity of the programmes.
