The Forum on Investing in Young Children Globally announced the release of their report, Financing Investments in Young Children Globally: Workshop Summary. The report summarizes the workshop held August 26-27, 2014 in New Delhi, India in partnership with the Centre for Early Childhood Education and Development (CECED), Ambedkar University, Delhi. The report summarizes research presentations that highlighted the links among sources of funding, types of funding mechanisms, and the pathways through which they operate with respect to maternal and child health, education, and social protection outcomes. The report further synthesizes discussions on the following thematic areas: (1) how to incorporate the issues of access and quality into costing models of early childhood programs, and (2) the impact of alternative models of financing (such as public-private partnerships) on child outcomes.
