Annual inclusive growth convention tackles investing in children

The Agency took part in the 2017 Convention for inclusive growth where the need for cooperation between policy areas to mainstream child rights was highlighted.

During the workshop on investing in children and breaking the cycle of disadvantage for a better future, an area the Agency is working on, the role of municipalities in tackling child poverty was highlighted and how fathers can help break the cycle of disadvantage.
