BIC's Child Rights Campaign advocates for strengthening IFI policies and programs to better identify and address harm to children in the development process. The campaign also aims to open more space and opportunity for children and youth to participate in and influence the development process. As the World Bank and other IFIs have recognized, ending poverty must begin with children and ensuring their protection and inclusion in the development process is the only way for IFIs to achieve their goals.
