Child Development Accounts (CDAs) enable families to build assets for children’s development and life goals. Examples include postsecondary education, homeownership, business development, and retirement security. Envisioned as universal, progressive, and lifelong, CDAs began in 1991 and have proliferated on a global scale since.
Inclusive Child Development Accounts: Toward Universality and Progressivity highlights emerging CDA policies and programs in the global context. With chapters focusing on countries such as Singapore, Israel, mainland China, Taiwan, Uganda, Korea, and the United States, the book showcases effect asset-building policies in diverse cultural and social contexts. The book emphasizes how investing in children early in life empowers them to achieve their potential as productive future citizens.
