New CBMS Initiative: Monitoring and Mitigating the Impact on Poverty of the Global Financial and Economic Crisis

The CBMS Network is supporting a new initiative entitled “Monitoring and Mitigating the Impact on Poverty of the Global Financial Crisis”. Although the global financial crisis originated in the US and spread to the European Union and some countries in Asia, the developing countries will not escape the adverse consequences. This project, therefore, aims to assess the impact of the crisis on poverty in selected developing countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America and Oceania.

PEP-Africa successfully bids to lead major UNICEF-commissioned study on the impact of the current global economic crisis on children in West and Central Africa.

PEP-Africa is working with teams of local researchers in Burkina Faso, Cameroon and Ghana to simulate the impacts of the crisis and potential policy responses on various dimensions of child welfare: income, calorie intake, school participation, child labor and access to health. The national teams are coached by an advisory group including several PEP researchers and resource persons - Ismaël Fofana, Sami Bibi, Massa Coulibaly, John Cockburn, Abdoulaye Diagne and Bernard Decaluwé - as well as Luca Tiberti from UNICEF's Innocenti Research Centre in Florence.
