While noting the introduction of the strategy “Children Living in Poverty (2015–2017)”, the Committee, in the light of ongoing child poverty, draws the State party’s attention to target 1.3 of the Sustainable Development Goals on implementing nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, and recommends that the State party increase the resources allocated to combating child poverty, including by increasing child benefit rates and by adjusting them in accordance with wage inflation.
