The Care of Children in Data: Evidence, Gaps and Opportunities for Change in the SDGs

World's leaders have committed to build a sustainable future for all by 2030.  However, data and statistics available in national and international statistical systems are still limited or poor for over half of the child-related SDG global monitoring indicators, leaving governments without the necessary information to tackle the obstacles of vulnerable and marginalised children.
