Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


The document details the critical challenges for the well-being of children in the context of the COVID-19 crisis and lays out the foundations of a Framework for Achieving the Well-Being of Children in the post-COVID-19 Decade to ensure that children are put at the centre of efforts to build back better.

On October 13 2020, the OECD Centre on Well-being, Inclusion, Sustainability and Equal Opportunity (WISE) and the Institute for Inspiring Children's Future at the University of Strathclyde, United Kingdom, hosted the webinar Securing the Recovery, Ambition and Resilience for the Well-Being of Children in the
Post-Covid-19 Decade. The purpose of the webinar was to provide a forum for OECD countries to share examples of country or regional policies and initiatives aimed at promoting child well-being during the coronavirus pandemic and to use these experiences to start shaping a shared understanding of the wellbeing of children and the outcome objectives in the post-COVID-19 decade. The webinar was the first of several opportunities for member countries and national experts to engage directly with the OECD over the next biennium on achieving the highest possible well-being of children in the post-COVID-19 decade.

This document supplements the background paper originally provided to delegates of the Working Party of Social Policy in advance of the webinar with the addition of an overview of the webinar proceedings and conclusions.
