This chapter concludes that childhood poverty and well-being are distinct from adult experiences of poverty and well-being, and that it is therefore critical that policy design, implementation, and evaluation processes are informed accordingly. It suggests that a ‘three-dimensional’ human well-being (3D WB) lens is useful to capture this distinctiveness in a holistic way as the approach builds on, but goes beyond minimum or ‘basic’ needs and their legal codification in rights conventions such as the UNCRC. The chapter suggests that in order to capture children's 3D WB, evidence or knowledge-generation processes need to draw on a mixed-methods or 3D approach, combining quantitative and qualitative approaches. It further concludes that case studies from developing-country contexts suggest that there is no single recipe for child-sensitive knowledge interaction and policy-influencing processes, but there are three clusters of factors which support such policy change: policy ideas and narratives, policy actors and networks, and policy contexts.
