Pathways from biological and psychosocial risk and protective factors to children’s development

A special section of the November 2016 International Journal of Behavioral Development has been published focusing on the nature of pathways underlying the impact of poverty on developmental inequality of children from low and middle income countries. The special section comprises 7 research papers presenting evidence from low and middle income countries documenting specific pathways from biological and psychosocial risk and protective factors to children’s development. The studies were carried out in a variety of countries from Latin America, Africa and Asia, cover a wide age range from infancy to school age and include both associational and intervention research. The special section was co-edited by Theodore D. Wachs (a member of the GCDG steering committee) and Santiago Cueto. A number of GCDG steering committee members also co-authored papers including Maureen Black, Leah Fernald and Sally Grantham-McGregor.
