This chapter deals with children and the knowledge–policy interface in sub-Saharan Africa. It briefly outlines the extent and nature of child poverty and well-being across Africa using the 3D approach. The chapter reflects on the characteristics of the knowledge-generation process in Africa and discusses the knowledge–policy interface surrounding child well-being in Africa. It also focuses on a case study of evidence-informed policy change in the context of an expert-led initiative to promote a more child-sensitive PRSP during the revision process of Ethiopia's second-generation PRSP.

Keywords:   children, knowledge–policy interface, sub-Saharan Africa, child poverty, 3D approach, knowledge-generation process, child-sensitive PRSP, second-generation PRSP
