Comment: The Forum on Investing in Young Children Globally of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, in partnership with the Center for Early Childhood Education and Development (CECED), Ambedkar University, Delhi will conduct an interactive public workshop featuring presentations and discussions that identify some of the current issues in financing investments across health, education, nutrition, and social protection that aim to improve children's developmental potential. Speakers will explore issues across three broad domains of financing: (1) costs of programs for young children; (2) sources of funding, including public and private investments; and (3) allocation of these investments, including cash transfers, microcredit programs, block grants, and government restructuring. Some models of current financing structures will be presented in order to illuminate potential opportunities for new financing structures targeted toward improving child outcomes.

A set of research presentations will highlight 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. Existing and emerging research will address 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.

The workshop will take place in New Delhi, India at The Oberoi Hotel. It will begin on August 26th at 9:00am IST and will end on August 27th at 1:00pm IST. The workshop will be webcast.
