The report argues that progress for the most disadvantaged children is the defining condition for delivering on the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.
Unless the world tackles inequity today, by 2030: Over 165 million children will live on no more than US$1.90 a day, nine out of 10 of them in sub-Saharan Africa. Almost 70 million children under the age of 5 will die of largely preventable causes. 750 million women will have been married as children, perpetuating inter-generational cycles of disadvantage. We have a clear choice to make: Invest in accelerated progress for the children being left behind, or face the consequences of a far more divided and unfair world by 2030.
Inequity is not inevitable. Better information on the most vulnerable children; integrated solutions to the challenges they face; innovative ways to address old problems; more equitable investment; and increased involvement by communities – all these measures can help level the playing field for children.
UNICEF is urging every country to develop a concrete, time-bound plan for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals that focuses on reaching the most disadvantaged children first. An equity approach – one that invests in the most disadvantaged children – is the best way to offer a fair chance for every child.
I invite you to read the report here and share it with your colleagues and networks. I hope it will inspire thought and action.
Best regards, Paloma Escudero
