Home to almost a third of the world’s population, the East Asia and Pacific region encompasses a huge area, and is enormously diverse. It includes large, populous China with 1.3 billion people, as well as small nations like Timor-Leste, with a population of less than one million. The region is represented by relatively wealthy countries, but also by countries where grinding poverty is still widespread. The quality of children’s lives in the region also varies enormously. In some parts of the region, children have relatively good access to the support and services necessary to ensure their survival and development, but in many other areas much remains to be done.
