KIX Costing Webinar From Simulation to Scale: Tools for Effective Costing of Early Learning and ECD Programs
| September 28, 2022 | 9:30 am to 11:00 am (America/New_York)
This webinar will provide an overview of the latest tools and resources that have been created to support evidence-based planning and advocacy for increased investments in ECE services, as well as strengthen planning, costing, and financing of this important sub-sector at national and sub-national levels. These tools/resources are: i) ECE Accelerator Simulation and Costing Model (UNICEF); ii) ILO Care policy Investment Simulator (ILO) and iii) Childhood Cost Calculator (Brookings). Each tool will be presented, and a deep-dive exploration of how and when the tool can be used will be shared. The webinar will also have a presentation from the World Bank to discuss the purposes of conducting cost analysis and how they inform the planning and implementation of ECE/D programs.
