UNICEF Brochure: A Resource for Monitoring and Action
UNICEF published a brochure: A resource for Monitoring and Action: Country Profiles on Early Childhood Development. The Countdown to 2030 country profiles on ECD are an important step in establishing a global monitoring and accountability system for early childhood development. They draw attention to progress as well as significant gaps, especially in extracting data pertaining to the youngest children and in measuring services and practices to improve nurturing care. They are intended to prompt further advocacy and action to advance early childhood development and to refine measurement and the collection of comparable country data in a number of areas critical to healthy development in the early years.
