This chapter discusses the extent and nature of child poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia at the end of the twentieth century. In doing so, it presents data on the number and distribution of children living in poverty and deprivation in the year 2000, with data disaggregated for urban and rural areas, and where relevant, by gender. While knowing the pattern of deprivation and poverty at a point in time is useful it is also important to know if conditions for children are improving or getting worse. Thus, the chapter shows what changes occurred in these regions, between 1995 and 2000. Policy implications are discussed.
