This three-day international conference aims to engage policy makers, practitioners and researchers in identifying solutions for fighting child poverty and inequality in Africa, and inspiring action towards change. The conference offers a platform for bridging divides across sectors, disciplines and policy, practice and research. Themes of the conference include: identifying the world's poorest and most overlooked children; improving social protection mechanisms to be more child-sensitive; reaching the poorest and most marginalized chidlren; and supporting secure transitions into adulthood.

- Identify, debate and advocate proven solutions to end child poverty in Africa;
- Share and discuss new research on who and where poor children are, why they are poor and what tailored approaches to address their situation may look like;
- Discuss particular policy and programming challenges and how they can be addressed;
- Build links and networks between researchers, policy makers and practitioners;
- Stimulate learning on particular skills that may help to move research to action.
