Closing Commentary

Show Summary Details


This commentary draws on the critical evidence presented in the volume to provide recommendations for governments, nongovernmental organizations, and international development agencies to implement quality early childhood development (ECD) programs and policies. The commentary provides an overview of the multiple global, regional, and national actors who have been involved in ECD, and their roles thus far in promoting programs and policies. The commentary makes a strong claim for the need for evidence to guide the actions of these key partners and suggests that this volume could serve as one such guide. In particular, the commentary stresses the importance of this evidence in ensuring that ECD is featured on the post-2015 international development agenda.

Keywords: early childhood development; international agencies and ngos; history of global actors in ecd; implications for action
