This brief is based on a recently published literature review by Fiona Remnant and Azra Abdul Cader of CEPA entitled â€˜The Multiple Dimensions of Child Poverty in Sri Lankaâ€™ and is based on the Deprivation, Exclusion and Vulnerability (DEV)Framework which was conceptualised by Wordsworth, McPeak and Feeny (2005) for the Christian Childrenâ€™s Fund worldwide. This brief aims to summaries the key findings from this literature review, which collated a range of qualitative and quantitative information available on a variety of issues relevant to a multidimensional understanding of child poverty in Sri Lanka. Every effort was made to track down and access as many resources as possible which refer to the issues included under the overarching theme of child poverty.
