Monitoring accountability of social institutions to children's development

by CIFAR Feb 6 / 14
Concentric layers of environments contribute to the developmental outcome of the early years.

Therefore the quality of children’s experiences within these environments is to be safeguarded. In this presentation, Ziba Vaghri (University of British Columbia) shares insights on how the Early Childhood Rights Indicators, a tool developed based on the Convention on the Rights of the Child, can be used to monitor the way social institutions are upholding their accountability to young children through the commitments they make, the processes that act on these commitments, and the collective impact these commitments and processes have on children's health, development and well-being.
