New online learning videos: Economics of Child Well-being

June 2022

Learn about the Economics of Child Well-being through PEP’s newest online learning videos, available for free on YouTube

Watch PEP’s newest series of learning capsules for an introduction to the Economics of Child Well-being. The 10 course videos are available for free on our YouTube channel in English and French.

Economic analysis can provide a rich and varied understanding of many key aspects of child well-being. The videos in this course cover measuring and characterizing the well-being of children in monetary and multidimensional terms, and explore the nature, causes and consequences of specific dimensions of child well-being such as schooling, labour, nutrition and health.

Through narrated presentations, these learning capsules also outline how to apply economic analysis to specific issues such as violence against children, the specific situation of adolescent children, and the impacts of climate change on child well-being. The course concludes with a broad review of how to use economic analysis to explore the effects of policies that target children.

The content of this course was developed by international PEP-affiliated experts—most from countries in the Global South—with support and assistance from the Global Coalition to End Child Poverty.

Since 2018, PEP has offered affordable online classes to help developing-country researchers contribute to effective national growth and poverty reduction strategies at home. For PEP-funded researchers, these courses complement in-person training workshops and benefit all members of the research teams.

As part of our mission to strengthen capacity and democratize information, PEP has made the narrated presentations from all of our online courses available for free on YouTube.
