About the product
The World Summit for Children, with its emphasis on goals to drive development and shape actions, and the corresponding need to monitor progress, had many strengths. One was to transform the way the world collected and processed data on children and women, creating a vital base and baseline for progress. This publication presents, in data and global trends, the results of an exhaustive and exacting review of the past decade. The results extract, measure and analyze information on how well the world has kept its promise to the children and women.
