INTERVENTION TO FOSTER EARLY CHILDHOOD DEVELOPMENT EVALUATION, SUSTAINABILITY AND SCALABILITY

November 28 @ 12:45 pm - 2:00 pm

About the lecture

Early Childhood Interventions have recently received much attention.  The consensus is that ECD interventions can ‘work’ and be very effective and important.  The new challenges, however,  are: (i) understand how interventions work and how they obtain the observed effects, through which channels, at what age, and so on. Following this, (ii) how to scale up effective interventions. The answer to the second question is related to the answer of the first.  Orazio will present some concrete examples of these issues in this lecture.
