This inter-agency project, launched in December 2000, is coordinated from the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre in Florence, Italy. Numerous publications on children’s work also originate in nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

WHO 1987) and the World Bank devoted attention to the connections between child labour and poverty (most recently Fallon and Tzannatos 1998; Grootaert and Patrinos 1999), UNICEF put the emphasis of its studies on the so-called street children.
