India is home to the largest child population in the world, with almost 41 per cent of the total population under eighteen years of age. The health and security of the country’s children is integral to any vision, for its progress and development. Doctors and health care professionals are often the first point of contact for abused and neglected children. They play a key role in detecting child abuse and neglect and for providing immediate and longer term care and support to children. In this episode we talk to Dr Rajeev Seth, President elect, ISPCAN (International Society for Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect) about Children and poverty in the face of COVID-19.

On episode 10 of the DMI Podcast, we have two experts in this field, research Director at NUPI, Ole Jacob Sending and Director of climate, energy and the environment at Norad, Stig Traavik.

Eradicating all forms of poverty continues to be one of humanity's greatest challenges. China has lifted 600 million people out of poverty since the 1980s, and according to the UN, India lifted 271 million people out of poverty between 2006 and 2016. During this conversation, we discuss "common, but differentiated responsibilities" and what Biden and Harris mean for climate, poverty and cooperation in the world. We also look at the sustainability goals and how international cooperation to save the world will be affected by disagreement and rivalry between great powers. Talking about poverty without talking about the task of business is not possible.
