The Early Years: Child Well-being and the Role of Public Policy
Join IDB President, Luis Alberto Moreno, and the editors of the book, Norbert Schady and Samuel Berlinski, at the Washington DC launch of this year’s edition of Development in the Americas (DIA): The Early Years: Child Well-Being and the Role of Public Policy.
This year’s DIA focuses on the well-being of children from conception to 8 years of age and makes a strong case for public intervention in improving child outcomes.
Children who are well cared for and stimulated during their early years are more likely to become healthy, productive citizens later in life. This book offers suggestions to improve public policies in ways that would certainly shape children’s lives and the face of the societies they live in for years to come.
