This chapter describes the objectives of this book on child poverty, evidence, and policy. It is about how children's visibility, voice, and vision in ideas, networks, and institutions can be mainstreamed in development research and policy. The chapter also aims to address a ‘policy audience’, those working within or seeking to influence policy, by drawing on and/or generating evidence that aims to promote children's visibility, voice, and vision. It further describes the organization of this book, whereby broad conceptual ideas on the nature of child poverty and well-being, related knowledge-generation processes, policy processes, and knowledge on policy processes are introduced. The chapter mentions that the book sets out insights into the interactions of knowledge and policy processes on child poverty and well-being in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
