The State of the World's Children 1980-1981 was launched by UNICEF Executive Director James Grant as an advocacy publication. The first The State of the World’s Children report focuses on the impact of poverty on children’s lives. It argues that perhaps for the first time the world has the resources and knowledge to mount a decisive push against hunger, disease and illiteracy. It calls for long-term political commitment to eradicating the worst aspects of poverty before the end of the twentieth century. From here to 2000 -- Investing in people -- Commitment and conclusions.
