African ECD Report

African Early Childhood Development
In contrast to many other fields of social and economic development, early childhood development (ECD) lacks a system of global indicators that include all key early childhood areas: education, nutrition, health, sanitation, and child rights and protection.

We are working on meeting this urgent need for a worldwide ECD database, in conjunction with the RISE Institute and the Consultative Group for Early Childhood Care and Development.

Initial Report
We put together an initial report on 37 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The printers just returned the first printing of this initial report. I think it turned out pretty well!

We are presenting this initial report at the Fourth African International Conference on Early Childhood Development in Dakar, Senegal on November 10-13, 2009.
